Adventures of a Supervet Tech – Toronto Fringe 2015 Press Release

“Secrets of the Veterinary World Revealed!”


Excerpt from press release:

How do you get a semen sample from a Pomeranian? Sandra Lean-Leighton takes you through the back door of your local vet clinic. With true stories, she introduces you to feisty pet owners, quirky vets and loveable animals – and the veterinary technicians who look after them all.
Through the eyes of her caped alter-ego, SuperVet Tech, Sandra pays tribute to the unsung heroes of the veterinary world. “Vet techs are nurses for animals,” she says, “but so much more. We do x-rays, medications, lab analysis, small surgeries, owner counselling, you name it. The problem is no one knows who we are or what we do. I intend to change that.”
Combining her careers as a professional actor and a Registered Veterinary Technician, Sandra delights both theatre buffs and animal lovers alike. Her audiences are treated to original music and video, dramatic monologues, and hilarious scenarios. This ground-breaking show is a first for the veterinary world and is not to be missed!

  1. From our Fringe-for-Free contest winner:

    “Adventures of a SuperVet Tech is a delightful production which exceeded my expectations.
    The show written and performed by a competent actor is about her ‘additional’ career as a vet tech.
    It is a passionate, entertaining and inspiring work.
    Some surprises: the amount of technology used in the field by a vet tech; the pathos evoked in the segment about euthanasia, which had a very personal aspect to it; and the description of the CRAZY (her word) pet owners encountered.
    Fast moving, creative, and a great piece of theatre.

    Thank you Sandra for your WORK!!”
