Alison Kolisnyk is making her third appearance with Merlyn Productions, and is thrilled to be performing in her first Master Playwright Festival – the role of Mum in “Ernie's Incredible Illucinations” is a dream come true!
Alison was first seen as the historical Alice Liddell in “Through the Looking-Glass (And What Alice Found There)” in December 2014, and most recently as the Shoemaker's Wife in “The World of The Brothers Grimm” in December 2015. July 2015 found Alison making her Winnipeg Fringe Festival début with R-G Productions as Kokum/Narrator in “Breadcrumbs”.
Previously, Alison had been on Winnipeg stages as part of FemFest with Sarasvati Productions: appearing as Angelina in “Cowboy Boots and A Corsage” (2003), in “Martha in the Corner” (2004), and in the one-woman show “A Kick in the Head” (2006).
Alison began studying acting, musical theatre, and dance as hobbies in her adult years. Recently, dance has been her primary recreational activity, and she has taken classes in various styles including jazz, tap, hip hop, modern, and African.
Offstage, Alison's “real world” revolves around hospitality, coordinating her front desk team in one of Winnipeg's vintage downtown hotels. Her other interests include travel, photography, horseback riding, and Zumba.
