Acting Out Musical Theatre

Our beloved artistic director, Criselda Mierau

Criselda Mierau is an accomplished pianist, singer, actress, and choral conductor. She has performed with Tommy Banks, Da Camera Singers, and Edmonton Opera Chorus and conducted award winning performers like Johnny Collins JR, Nora Bumanis, Charlie Austin and PJ Perry. She was also a choral administrator for the 2001 World Track & Field Championships Opening Ceremonies in Edmonton.

A talented accompanist, Criselda has played for auditions, festivals and stage productions, as well as workshops and reading sessions for Lydia Adams, Mac Huff, Linda Spevacek and Marc Hafso. She accompanied the Alberta Honour Children’s Choir under the direction of Linda Beaupre.

Criselda enjoys her work with non-auditioned community groups to the extent that she considers it a life-long passion. Under her 31 years at the helm of the St Albert Singers Guild, the choirs thrived and produced 5 recordings, too many concerts to count and embarked on numerous tours within Canada and Europe.

Acting Out Musical Theatre started in 2008 with Criselda as the original founding director. Many revue-style shows and full-out musical theatre productions later, AOMT continues to enjoy much success under her watchful and playful eye.
