Ross Hodgson and Clinton Hughes were both born and raised in Saskatchewan and lived their adult lives in Calgary Alberta. Ross has a long history in the arts and has taught Drama and Musical theatre for over twenty years. Clinton is an Interior Designer by trade, but also has a theatrical background having toured internationally with Disney on Ice. Ross' love affair with Stratford began back in High School when he won an acting award that sent him to visit the Festival. After that Ross made the trek across the country every couple of years to attend the festival. Many years passed and on one of the trips the couple took to Stratford together, Ross said to Clinton "Wouldn't it be wonderful to live here someday?" Someday happened a whole lot sooner than either of them had planned. In 2008 the couple bought a house and moved across the country to start a new adventure.
"We did what most people only think about, we dropped everything and followed a dream and the result was everything we could have hoped for and more."
