Cherissa Richards • Alice / Eeyore / Owl / Rabbit / Kanga / Roo

Cherissa is always so happy to return to the MTYP stage where she began her career as an actor. Cherissa’s year has been filled with theatre and movie making; from acting in shows at Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre, directing with Sarasvàti Theatre, Vancouver’s Bard on the Beach and a few Hallmark movies shot in between. After House at Pooh Corner, you can catch Cherissa as Mayme in WJT’s Intimate Apparel. MTYP has been an incredible home of debuts for Cherissa: acting debut, directing debut and after Pooh, you can see her playwriting debut in January in MTYP’s Torn Through Time. Cherissa would like to thank her family for their wonderful support and Pablo Felices-Luna for being such a great mentor!
