Bronze Winner Kevin Kindred


“The makeup changes, the style changes a bit, but you always stay true to yourself,” says Jason Rose-Spurrell of the evolution of his famed alter ego Rouge Fatale. And she’s come a long way from “three sticks of makeup and a bad Value Village dress” to the in-demand personality who brings big laughs and boisterous songs to main stages across the Maritimes and has helped form the Glamazon Army, a troupe of 11 local queens working (it) together. “It’s been such a phenomenal adventure all the way around,” says Rose-Spurrell. “I wouldn't trade it for the world.” Listen for Rouge’s real pipes next spring, when she’ll be belting out tunes in Katey Day’s upcoming rock opera.
