His favourite part of working at the Globe is being able to impress his parents with tickets to shows; he can’t wait to continue to do so after renovations of the theatre are complete. Outside of the Globe, if Caleb isn’t at the gym, it’s because he spends too much time playing video games and not enough time at the gym.

I first got involved with theatre in grade school and have been involved ever since. Our school would put on plays, like most schools do, and at a young age; I found all the aspects of creating the production fantasticating and engaging (and I still do). I usually got involved through performing, but when the A/V company showed up to set up their lights and sound equipment, or the shop crew started setting up the stage and set; I was interested, and I followed them around watching over their shoulder. They took note of my interest, and started showing me around, and giving me tasks to get involved. This allowed me to get a taste of all aspects of theatre, and I was hooked. From there, I continued to be involved both in front of, and behind the scenes, in high school. I studied theatre, and theatre performance, at the University of Regina, and Audio Engineering and Production at PAVI, in Vancouver. Returning home from Vancouver, I started working at the Globe Theatre, and have been here ever since.
The thing I like most about the theatre industry is that there are so many different jobs and ways to get involved. If you don't want to act; you can still find a creative and fulfilling place in theatre.”
