Performers and Staff
Shows like this can't make it to the stage without a great team working together.
Our team is more like a family, and we want you to be a part of that family too.

In 2011 Daniel moved from Riverside-Albert, a small community near Moncton, New Brunswick and quickly found a new home in Corner Brook’s bustling arts community. With a decade long career in fine dining/catering food service and a lifelong love of performance art, Daniel brings a lot to the table.
Daniel is responsible for all of our imaging, including the company logo and the logos for all of our shows.
Born and raised in Grand Falls-Windsor, Joel is still new to the west coast area. Classically trained at the piano and a graduate of the MUN School of Music, Joel’s first appearance in Corner Brook was the role of Mark in the Off-Broadway Players' production of Rent in the fall of 2018. Dinner Theatre specifically has been a major part of Joel’s professional career with hundreds of shows and a dozen seasons on stage with the Queen Street Dinner Theatre in Grand Falls-Windsor.
Joel is super excited to be able to bring his experience to a new company and spend his time on stage with his new Corner Brook theatre family.
Emma is a Steady Brook native and a graduate of MUN Grenfell Campus' Theatre Program. Her past credits include Stage West Theatre's presentations of Ernest and Ernestine and A Fine Time, Grenfell's Three Sisters and Romeo & Juliet, Rising Tide Theatre's West Moon and No Man's Land, as well as Double Sure Theatre's presentation of Her Closely. She could not be more excited to be working with this fine group of performers for New Found Family Drama's first season and into the future!
Chris has been passionate about the drums since he was a small child when his uncle gave him his first set of sticks at the age of seven. He also has a passion for extreme sports and spent three years following a dream of professional snowboarding in Whistler, BC before returning to Newfoundland with his partner, Jennifer in 2008. As he was unable to take his drums to BC, his mother gave him a Horner accordion and a tin whistle, which he became proficient at playing while living away. Chris currently plays in a heavy metal band, Sludgefist, who recorded an album at Village Music this past summer.
Bio coming soon!

Katelyn was born and raised in Corner Brook. She is well-known for her involvement in the sports community including a decade of working with the Corner Brook Minor Soccer Association. She graduated Memorial University, Grenfell Campus with a Bachelor of Arts (History/Geography) and is pursuing a Bachelor of Intermediate Education at Memorial.

Originally hailing from Saskatchewan, Jennifer has been a long-time lover of food. After first learning to bake with her aunt on the family farm, Jennifer found her new talent. After moving to Newfoundland, she discovered that she either needed to learn to cook food with a flair or survive on rural Newfoundland cooking. After years of trial and error, as well as hours of YouTube, she learned to hold her own in a fine dinning restaurant where she worked as Head Chef and Kitchen Manager. Now she spends her time running her business Tall Poppy Catering and Events as well as cooking professionally for New Found Family Drama Company.
We are sad to see them go, but
wish them all the best.
We couldn't have done any of our shows in 2019
without these fine Performers on our team.
Good luck in your next adventures everyone!
