Reading Participants RUTH STEINER (Catherine Burns) Catherine Burns lives in Beeton and has performed in plays at the Black Horse Theatre and the South Simcoe Theatre. She played Alice B. Toklas in the first play reading, and Aurelia Plath in the second. Most recently she played four roles in Peter Panto at SST and is relieved not to be singing and dancing in this performance.

Kimberley is a Reading Participant tonight to help illustrate that pretty much anyone can do this. Volunteers?
