In The News: Little One

” Caroline Toal’s portrayal of Claire is hauntingly fantastic. She slithers through a range of human emotions (or their absence) with impressive fluidity; her vacant, uncomprehending expressions and stilted movements as young Claire contrast sharply with her moments of coherence and classic sibling behaviour as she ages.”  – Norfolk News

In The News: For A Good Time, Call Kathy Blanchard

“I think I was most taken with Caroline Toal’s turn as an unsuspecting fiancée! She’s so giddy and it’s contagious. She was responsible for my first and most satisfying belly laugh. Having been offered some flowers she’s allergic to, she clutches them enthusiastically and exclaims: “I still love to hold them.” I doesn’t read like much, but trust me, it’s beautiful and hilarious.” – Mooney on Theatre

In The News: To Kill A Mockingbird

“Luckily, Caroline Toal’s Scout proves to be a charming, loose-limbed and relaxed guide to events; through her and like her, we experience the shock of prejudice, bafflement at the law’s inadequacies and, by the end, the accumulation of some worldly wisdom.” – The Toronto Star

“Caroline Toal brings out all the enthusiasm and excitement of a girl imbued with an overwhelmingly positive view of the world.” – Stage Door

In The News: Cockfight

It is impossible to imagine anyone but Toal playing Ingrid: She fits the troubled teenager’s impossible description perfectly.” – The Globe And Mail

“Caroline Toal is terrific as Ingrid, a young woman so in need of validation and adventure, she shifts alliances on a dime, triggering conflict.” – Burke Campbell

In The News: Firebrand

“My favourite Character was Bell, Mackenzie’s youngest daughter, played by Caroline Toal. Feisty and ever curious, Bell was the hope in the play. She was the one who wanted to take over her father’s political fight. I wanted to know what happened to her. Did she lead the Canadian suffragettes movement? Or did she marry a politician and secretly lead a revolution? “- Mooney on Theatre

In The News: We Are The Bomb

“From the pretty student who nervously enters the bar to meet a guy from an internet dating site (we’ve all been there) to the brave 16-year-old who declares she came to the bar to “fight for her future right to drink” and “make stupid decisions as a result.” The girl’s certainly got spirit! The actors here truly inhabit their characters, with no-one playing it just for laughs and instead letting the honesty of what could be an absurd situation play itself out.” –Spindle Magazine
