Jason has been involved with Kingston community theatre for over 10 years. He also considers himself handy in the kitchen as the household chef for his family of three beautiful ladies. Jason has appeared in several Domino Theatre plays, including the very successful production of The Mousetrap in 2012. He played Giles Ralston opposite Genevieve Landis as his wife Mollie Ralston. This is his first foray into murder mystery dinner theatre, and he is delighted to be delivering his lines to an audience who will also be enjoying a delicious meal!
Genevieve woke up one morning several months ago and decided it would be great fun to produce a murder mystery with a decidedly Kingston flavour! Inspired by Arthur Milnes and the Bicentennial Commission, the Sir John A. Mega-Park Murder Mystery is the outcome. Given the original storyline, the cast was outstanding in providing greater depth to each character. The performance is truly a group effort! Genevieve’s background is in marketing and advertising, working for a diverse group of national companies with head offices in Toronto. Her interest in acting led her to classes at Second City, the Leah Posluns Theatre School and George Brown College. Her performances with Mysteriously Yours in Toronto gave her the experience needed to write and produce this murder mystery. More recently, she portrayed Mollie in Domino Theatre’s production of The Mousetrap (the best-selling show to date in Domino’s new facility!) She would like to thank the Domino for graciously providing key costumes for this production. And also thank Sir John A. for his incredible nation-building achievements!
