Candace Meeks began acting at the age of 6 when her first grade teacher asked her to be in her school’s annual Easter play because she was “vivacious”. How a 6 year-old could be vivacious, she’ll never know, but it did lead her to attend Sheridan College for Theatre and Humber College for Acting for Film and TV.
Candace has studied improv comedy throughout Toronto, as well as the Annoyance Theatre in Chicago. She has participated in the Toronto Improv Festival, Big City Improv Festival, Toronto’s Harold Fest, SheDot Festival, NYC’s Del Close Marathon, Detroit Improv Festival, and the Chicago Women’s Funny Festival.
Candace produces Bad Dog Theatre’s Academy Tuesdays. She is also a producer with Mediajunkie Studios, the creators of (My) Immortal: The Webseries, in which she plays twin sisters Violet & Lizzie. You can also see her in their second series, No Boys Dorm, in which she plays the princess, Moe. Candace has a passion for helping other women create web content and has worked on a number of projects including Harpreet Sehmbi’s “INDIE-pendent” and Cassie Cao’s “Losertown”.
Candace performs regularly with Daisy Productions. She has been an active player, writer and director in “The Waiting Room”, “Dial L for Latchkey”, “Binge Watching You Sleep”, “The Daisy Show”, and “One Three Hill”. If you happen to be in Orlando, FL this coming May you can check out the Daisy players in their sketch comedy revue “LOL LOL Land”.
Candace can be seen performing monthly with her troupes, “What If?”, “Kinsey Fail” and “America’s Next Top (Blank)”. She’s also an active member of the all-female Harold team Wheels, the musical troupe “Twice Upon A Time” and her duo “The Meeks Shall Inherit the Stern” with Karen Stern. Be sure to catch her new improvised serial show, Quadruple Mountain starting March 2nd at SoCap with the Dead Detectives.
