NAME OF ANNUAL FUND

Anne-Marie Cadieux Scholarship

INTRODUCTION

This scholarship was generously created by Ms. Anne-Marie Cadieux, a graduate of the Theatre Department of the University of Ottawa.

Anne-Marie Cadieux is a talented actor who graces the stage, television and films. She has trod the boards and worked with some of Canada’s most famous directors, including Robert Lepage, Brigitte Haentjens, Denis Marleau, Serge Denoncourt, Dominic Champagne, Lorraine Pintal, and André Brassard, interpreting some of the greatest roles in classical and contemporary theatre. Her career spans the gamut of daring roles in challenging works, including Merteuil in Heiner Müller’s Quartett and Caliban in Shakespeare’s The Tempest, along with title roles in Miss Julie by Strinberg, Electra by Sophocles, and Molly Bloom, a production inspired by James Joyce’ Ulysses. At the Théâtre du Nouveau Monde, her notable roles have included Elizabeth I in Marie Stuart by Dacia Maraini, Marguerite Gautier in La Dame aux camélias by Alexandre Dumas, Annette Reille in Le Dieu du carnage by Yasmina Reza, and Sophie in Ha ha!... by Réjean Ducharme, each of which earned her a Prix Gascon-Roux for the year’s best performance in a female role. In parallel, she undertook a series of television and movie roles, winning the Prix Luce-Guilbault for best new actor for her role in Le Confessionnal by Robert Lepage, a Prix Jutra for her role in Le Cœur au Poing by Charles Binamé and a Gemini Award for her role in Radio-Canada’s production of Cover Girl. In June 2013, she was awarded an honorary doctorate by the University of Ottawa.
