She has done staged readings with Peninsula Productions: Mrs. Venable in Suddenly Last Summer, and Nancy in Frozen, as well as Ellen in Sea of Stories and Mother Miriam Ruth in Agnes of God, which was produced at the Coast Capital Playhouse. Other favourite roles include Sarah Bernhardt in Ladies of the Camellias, Annie in Calendar Girls, as well as Sister Aloysius in Doubt, and Amanda Wingfield in The Glass Menagerie.
Guy approaches theatre as an opportunity for collaborative storytelling that illuminates the soul. Born in Saskatchewan and raised in White Rock, Guy has taught devised theatre creation for the Arts Club Theatre’s Creative Teens program, classical text at Young Shakespeareans at Bard on the Beach, speech arts and poetry recitation in high school workshops and festivals, and Introduction to Theatre at Thompson Rivers University. The Canada Council awarded Guy the JBC Watkins Award to pursue graduate studies in Directing at the University of Alabama. There, he was nominated Best Director for the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival for his production of Hair. Other memorable theatre credits include Death and the Maiden, How I Learned to Drive, The Nether, Frozen, Oleanna, and Transit of Venus. We are nothing but story. Listen, observe, engage.
