Sword and Sorcery School Faculty
Michael Ripley, Dungeon Master
Also a playwright, director and actor D.M. Ripley taught for years with the Arts Express afterschool theatre and "Improv for Teens" programs. He has also taught acting for dancers at the Canadian Contemporary Dance Theatre’s Sundance summer school and has twice directed the Blyth Festival Theatre’s Young Company program. Other teaching credits include 2 years as a Theatre History instructor for Ryerson University’s School of Performance. His plays have appeared on stages from Sydney to Dubai to Chennai. When not making theatre Michael spends downtime playing D&D with his sons, friends and the goblin folk that live behind his furnace. His first DnD character was Baffle Cakecheek – a bard/baker bagpiper with a knack for the arcane art of philo-mancy.
Adrianna Prosser, Transfiguration Teacher
After twenty years serving the muggle world as camp counselor, leading program development and theatrical endeavors for adults and children alike under the moniker "Big Red" with the City of Toronto,various arts camps across Ontario, and overseas (literally on a cruiseship), Professor Prosser joined Eldritch Theatre in 2016 to help create wonderous productions and programs that made use of her wand. You can find her on the award-winning children's webseries Cranium Cookie on Shaftesbury's SortaTV and leading her favourite program at Colborne Lodge, Haunted High Park, each October. Her Animagus is a Dragonborn Rogue, and her familiar is Pebbles Fraggle.
