    What's a top CT Memory for you?
    DC: Watching my young son perform in the children’s chorus of A Christmas Carol.

    How's your paint skill?
    DC: Terrible. Although, in high-school I worked part time at a paint store. So maybe that gives me some kind of edge?

    How do you think Chantell's skill will be?
    DC: Chantell has a great sense of fashion and style, so I expect that means she’ll have a good eye for painting, right?

    What's a top CT Memory for you?
    AD: John’s entrance as Frank-N-Furter, rising up from below as smoke filled the stage, while the bass drum was kicking the opening of "Sweet Transvestite"! 

    How's your paint skill?
    AD: I can paint by numbers. That's about it.

    How do you think John's skill will be?
    AD: Just a BIT better than mine. LOL!

    What's a top CT Memory for you?

    JU: Years ago, Lester Myhr was the head carpenter.  He was a great guy, I remember being told (perhaps he told me) that he came from building houses.  That when he started, he over-built everything, that he made it to last forever.  Of course sets don’t have to last forever, usually just for the run of the show.  Well, Lester became very ill.  Terminally ill.  And all the carpenters in the shop got together and built his coffin.  I guess that’s a tradition with carpenters. He knew that they were building it for him; perhaps they measured him for it.

    Well, of course I knew Lester. I have an interest in carpentry, and I used to ask him questions about building stuff and along with everyone else, I was pretty taken aback learning about his illness.  And something quite astonishing happened - I was invited to go into the shop and partake in the building of his coffin.  Everyone was there (in fine spirits -figuratively and alcoholically), sharing stories about Lester, and the things they had made at the Citadel, as well as many many memories everyone had.  It was a very joyous, welcoming place to be.  I think I sanded a part of it - I didn’t want to be the one who ruined it.  But it was beautiful, and I am grateful for this memory and to have shared that moment with some really great people.

    How's your paint skill?
    JU: Well, I hate painting.  I will do pretty much anything except paint.  The idea of painting a room is hateful.  Painting anything other than that fills me with dread and anxiety.  I don’t think I have painted anything on any surface in remotely an artistic endeavour since I was in grade 3.  I have managed to avoid it ever since.  But hey, if someone is willing to teach me something, I won’t care how it turns out.  I’ll just do what I am told, and keep my ego out of it.

    How do you think Annie's skill will be?
    JU: Annie will say the same thing.  Except she likes painting rooms.  So that works out.  I make dinner, she makes breakfast.  That’s why we’re still married after 20 years.  Honestly, though, I think I might be better than Annie with the painting thing.  We both said how bad we think we are.  I am pretty sure this will not be a portrait, so whatever we are depicting won’t be offended.  Or maybe it will, I have some belief in the feelings of inanimate objects.

    What's a top CT Memory for you?
    KH: My favourite Citadel memory was performing in the final scene of Mieko Ouchi’s The Silver Arrow when the trapeze would drop down from the grid and I’d know I had made it through that monster of a show and that it was time to swing into the denouement of that fab show with that fantastic ensemble of artists. 

    How's your paint skill?
    KH: Not great to meh.

    How do you think Sheldon's skill will be?
    KH: Much better than mine. He is meticulous in everything he does and I tend to be more of a loose cannon, so I imagine my work is going to be “instinctual” while Sheldon’s will be “precise.”

    What's a top CT Memory for you?
    SE: I think my favourite Citadel memory is getting to play my cigar box six string guitar, Coyote, made by, Bobby Smale, with my band, The Be Arthurs, in, One Man Two Guvnors. Felt like a rockstar.

    How's your paint skill?
    SE: My paint skills aren't that great...

    How do you think Kristi's skill will be?
    SE: ...but I think they might be better than Kristi's. Scary question when I think that we will be painting together!
