Do you love gold stars? Were you “a joy to have in class”? So was Ashton Turner.
Ashton was one of those “gifted children”; a precocious bookworm who thrived on the structure and simplicity of the classroom and delighted in praise from any authority figure who would give it to her. Now she’s all grown up and spends most of her time wondering when she’ll live up to all that “potential” she apparently once had.
Former Gifted Child is a brand-new one-woman cabaret that examines our idea of success through the eyes of someone who once was destined for it. Join award-winning* writer/performer Ashton Turner as she jumps artfully from ballad to bop and back again, intricately weaving story and song into a performance that is “…wonderfully honest, compelling, comedic, relatable, and innovative” (Samantha Hafey, Wild Tongues Productions).
*awards include Pupil of the Week in Grade 2 and a participation trophy from Little Athletics.
