Artistic Director - Autumn Antonsen
Autumn founded Starry Starry Skies in 2015 to support and grow the arts community in Victoria, BC. Her mission is to produce quality original works alongside presenting new spins on classic musicals. Born and raised in Victoria, BC Autumn's love of musical theatre began with the absence of TV in her childhood home, meaning all she watched growing up was copies of classic musical movies. To this day, musical theatre gives her profound joy. Autumn hopes that Starry Starry Skies can become one of the top professional theatre companies in the city.
