Prior to pursuing an MFA in Choreography from York Universities Dance Department, Allison received her professional training at Sheridan College in the Music Theatre — Performance Program. Professional credits include the North American tour of “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels”, “Spamalot”, “Moon Over Buffalo”, “Crazy For You” (Drayton Entertainment), “The Producers” (Neptune Theatre), “Les Feux Follets” (Charlottetown Festival), “Cabaret”, “Mary Poppins” (Theatre Aquarius), “Chicago” (Stage West) and “Singin in the Rain” (Capitol Theatre). Allison was one of the founding members of C Theater Works where she co-produced and choreographed the inaugural production of “Marathon of Hope” at the Sheridan Studio Theatre. Most recently she choreographed the sold out run of “The Little Mermaid Jr.” for the Capitol Theatre in Port Hope Ontario. Allison regularly attends workshops and master classes including the prestigious improvisation workshop held at Celebration Barn Theater, taught by master teacher Keith Johnstone. She also founded Toronto’s hit girl group “The Foxy Femmes” in 2009, an act that performed regularly in Toronto. Her major inspiration to date has been from collaborative work, whether as an ensemble member in large scale productions, or as team member of smaller installments. This inspiration is the impetus for her thesis work; A study of Women’s Work in the Chorus of Canadian Musical Theatre.
