It’s a Red Rock Diner kind of summer!

We’ve added 8 more shows to the run of Red Rock Diner—now playing until August 23 at the Granville Island Stage! We know what you love about summer in Vancouver (going to see Red Rock Diner!), but what about the cast?

Steven Greenfeld ~ Music Director/Jerry (keyboard)/Ensemble
Jeff Gladstone ~ Bill (guitar)/Ensemble
Anna Kuman ~ Connie
Tafari Anthnoy ~ Richard

What’s your favourite summer activity in Vancouver (other than being on stage!)?

Steven: All of the summer BBQs!
Jeff: My favorite summer activity has got to be riding my bike around Stanley Park and swimming at Third Beach. And biking to the theatre along the seawall every night is pretty awesome too.
Anna: Heading to the beach! The cast even goes to Kits Beach together on our break between matinee and evening performances.
Tafari: Being that this is my first time in Vancouver, I’ve been enjoying exploring all the city has to offer on my time off. Seeing all the beautiful scenery and tourist attractions has been a great way to spend the summer.

What’s the best thing about being part of Red Rock Diner?

Steven: Getting to be a rockstar for a couple hours every day; getting to lead such a kickass band; and getting to collaborate with director/choreographer Valerie Easton in tailoring this production to our amazing cast. Oh, and of course the best thing about being a part of Red Rock Diner is how much the audience enjoys the production; looking out from the stage and seeing hundreds of faces smiling ear to ear!
Anna: Hanging out with the amazing cast and crew. We all get along so well we even plan BBQs and games nights together on our time off! We can’t get enough of each other:)
Tafari: Working with such amazing talents! Everyone from the onstage cast, to all the people who work behind the scenes! It has been a very warm welcome for me at the Arts Club and everyone has made me feel like I have been here for years! This love and support also shines through in the show. One of my favourite moments on stage is close to the end of act two when we pay homage to some of the stars of the yesteryear. When we get to Red Robinson, the love and support that comes from the audience makes me smile every night!
