taking a break from acting over a decade ago, Bretzke retrained as a computer scientist and currently works managing data for a research group in the Centre for Neuroscience Studies at Queen's University.
After 14 years offstage, Kingston actor Helen Bretzke is stepping back into the spotlight in a new production of Edward Albee's classic absurdist play Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, which opens at the Kingston Yacht Club on March 29 for the first of four performances.
Actor steps back into spotlight in meaty role
Take Helen Bretzke, for example, who ditched the stage in favour of a career as a computer scientist.
Working in the same research group was director Carl Jackson, a Nike Uptempo Mint Green founder member of new theatre company Impromptu Productions. Jackson was looking for a candidate for a Nike Air More Uptempo Release Price
show after successfully putting on Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing in City Park in the summer of 2011.
"I asked her what would get her back onstage and without missing a beat she replied that it would be playing a part she wanted to play in a show she wanted to do without having to audition," says Jackson. "And when I asked her what that part and that show would be, she said Martha in Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? And that's how the idea was planted."

In the interim, she kept her love of performance alive by performing with the Kingston Egyptian Dance Ensemble, choreographed by Adishakti, which she was a member of from 2008 2011.
Jackson took the proposal to the board of Impromptu and they decided that the play, focused around the cruel games an older couple play with a younger couple, would be perfect for Impromptu's mandate of strengthening ties between the Kingston and Queen's theatrical communities.
What some people will do to get out of an audition.
The play, which stars Bretzke as Martha and longstanding Kingston theatre stalwart Matthew Davis as George, also features Impromptu alumna Catherine Owsik as Honey and, newcomer to the company, Ben Bankas as Nick.
Bretzke recalls "I stopped acting when I was 31 because I found auditions too stressful. I also wanted a more stable lifestyle and income. Right about then I discovered that I had a passion for computers and math. So I went back to school, got a degree in Computer Science, and became a software developer."
