Tahnia Getson (BA ’20) is a multidisciplinary artist who began preparations to create her not-for-profit theatre company before graduating from the University of Lethbridge. After participating in numerous shows and creative endeavours at the University of Lethbridge, including an independent study, main stage productions and volunteerism, Tahnia grew her skillset and found support in friends, faculty and experiences. Cavalcade Theatre Company successfully launched in August of 2020, with the purpose of providing a platform for youth advocacy.
