Sue LePage has been designing for theatre, dance and opera for more than 40 years. Last season she designed the set for Too True to be Good at the Shaw Festival. Her new designs for “Anne of Green Gables the Ballet” (Canada’s Ballet Jorgen) had premiered and commenced to tour Canada and the United States when Covid shut them down. Other recent designs include Jani Lauzon’s I Call Myself Princess (Globe Theatre), sets for Bend it Like Beckham (Starvox) and costumes for Brigadoon at the Shaw Festival, where her credits include Me and My Girl, Ragtime, Saint Joan, Arcadia, Born Yesterday and many others.
In the world of opera her designs include the premiers of new work such as John Estacio and John Murrell’s Filumena, Frobisher, and Lillian Alling. Recent Toronto productions include Disgraced (Mirvish/ Hope in Hell), Beauty and the Beast (YPT), Innocence Lost (Soulpepper) and many shows over the years at Canadian Stage, Tarragon and Factory Theatre. Her work has appeared at major theatres across the country including The Banff Centre, Citadel, RMTC, National Arts Centre, Charlottetown Festival, Neptune Theatre and the Stratford Festival. Sue has been lucky to work with many great directors and some of Canada’s finest playwrights including James Reaney, David French, Judith Thompson, Tomson Highway, John Murrell and Carole Frechette. She is thrilled by the return of live performance and a new era of fresh voices and exciting new work.
