Michelle Dias

It was with great sadness that I learned of the passing of APN member Michelle Dias. I had the opportunity and pleasure to work with her on a couple of her plays, most notably The Young Lion of Vinci and found her voice as a writer as passionate and honest as her voice as a person. Most recently she was a participant in our PROLOGUE program in May and I remember how she spoke of writing with an incredible intelligence, passion and excitement. Her flame and talent was extinguished much too soon.

My condolences go out to her entire family, the family of the Citadel Theatre and the Edmonton theatre community during this time of loss. Below is the information regarding her memorial.

On Thanksgiving Day, Monday, October 10, at 2 pm, there will be a Tribute to the Life of Michelle Dias in the Citadel’s Tucker Amphitheatre.

Please join Michelle’s parents and sisters and her Citadel family in sharing memories of a dear friend and colleague.
