Theatre In the Woods Company

Our Story by Natalie Slawnyk

Theatre In The Woods Company is a husband and wife team who are passionate about the theatre and want to provide high quality compelling entertainment to audiences.

I have always loved theatre – even though I did not pursue it as a career, it has always been my underlying passion. After heavily performing for several years in junior high and high school, I took some time away from the stage to focus on my family and career. After things fell into place, something seemed missing and I decided to return to the stage again. My husband probably wondered, who is this new woman I married? As I got back into the arts, my passion returned fueled by my love for theatre – wanting to entertain and tell a story.

I was given the task to create a murder mystery game for a Halloween competition at work and I quickly became engrossed with the story and wild characters I created. I became obsessed. As I tested my game on family and friends and I saw their eyes light up with excitement and intrigue. After Halloween, my husband encouraged me to expand upon the story by writing a full show. Soon after I fell further and further down the rabbit hole of creating this magical world and colorful characters. I enlisted the help of an amazing local composer and carefully selected talented local actors who fit the characters to a “T”. This is how Who? A Musical Murder Mystery was born.
