Brielle Ansems

Brielle Ansems cast in role for A Mood for the Misbegotten

Watermark Theatre has announced that Brielle Ansems has won the lead role of Josie Hogan in A Moon for the Misbegotten after a national audition search.

Raised in Montague, and currently living in Charlottetown, Brielle is a student at the Holland College School of Performing Arts Theatre Program. Her theatre experience includes The Island’s Super Duper Fantabulous Holiday Smorgasbord of Joy at the Confederation Centre of the Arts, The Princess and the Pea with The Cat’s Pajamas Theatre Company, and Theatre St. Thomas’ The Caucasian Chalk Circle. She is also known to PEI audiences as a singer-songwriter, and from her roles in shows with Feast Dinner Theatre. 

Brielle says that she is thrilled to be making her full-season debut at the Watermark, particularly in a role with as much to offer as Josie Hogan. “Josie’s resilience and vulnerability are so real and compelling, and it’s an honour to be able to bring her to life this summer.”

“We held auditions for this role in Charlottetown, Halifax, and in Toronto. We also received video taped auditions submitted from across the country,” says Watermark Artistic Director Robert Tsonos. “Brielle had stiff competition from many very talented actresses from across the country but she did a superb audition and we are thrilled to have her join us this summer.”

A Moon for the Misbegotten by Eugene O’Neill is a unique blend of comedy, tragedy, autobiography, and imagination.  A love story set in 1923 between a Broadway actor, Jim Tyrone, and a Connecticut farm girl named Josie Hogan. Josie and her hard drinking Irish father Phil scheme to hold on to the farm they’ve worked for 20 years. When their neighbour, an oil magnate, stakes a claim on their property they do all they can to stop the sale. Under the light of one night’s magical moon A Moon for The Misbegotten plumbs the depth of the human spirit with tremendous redemptive power.

Brielle says that she can’t wait to start rehearsals and spend the summer in North Rustico. “I couldn’t be more excited to be cast in this production. O’Neill’s writing is an actor’s dream, and this show is no exception,” says Brielle.

A Moon for the Misbegotten runs from July 6 to August 31.
