Sonja and Diva Lounge Productions Return to the Fringe Festival

April 7th, 2011


Sonja is preparing to return to the London Fringe Festival stage in June with Diva Lounge Productions' staging of Gian-Carlo Menotti's "The Old Maid And The Thief".  In it's fourth season, DLP will once again feature the talents of UWO-trained musicians in the 5 person cast made up of Jessica Lane, Taylor Robertson, David Diston, Paul Grambo, Ian Robertson and Sonja.  


Originally commissioned by NBC Radio for broadcast in 1939, The Old Maid And The Thief is a one act opera that tells the tale of an old spinster and her maid, also likely destined for spinsterhood.  The two of them take in a handsome drifter, only to find he may be an escaped convict.  Will they turn him in, or will they let their infatuation turn them into his accomplices?

Sonja has won the DISH Award for Best Actress in a Musical for her role of the widow in The Boor!  Last night's awards show, hosted at Aroma Restaurant, featured performances by several award winners and was a fantastic evening celebrating theatre in London. 


Several excellent performances were also nominated in the category along with Sonja. Click here to read more about the 2011 DISH Awards.

Sonja would like to thank her fellow castmembers of The Boor, several of whom were also nominated in other categories for a DISH Award. She would also like to thank those who attended the show at last year's Fringe Festival.  Plans for this year's show are currently under way, with details being announced on the Diva Lounge Productions page very soon!
