As Artistic Producer of Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan since 2014, Will’s (he/him) work was seen recently as director of Romeo and Juliet, Othello, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Twelfth Night and Titus A. puppet revenge.  Audiences with a healthy memory may remember a younger version of Will with a number of appearances onstage from 2000 through 2007.  After focusing on directing and producing, Will spent seven great years at Persephone Theatre before having the honour to rejoin this wonderful festival. His work as director, actor, designer, and dramaturge has been seen around Saskatchewan at Persephone, Dancing Sky Theatre, a number of Live Five Companies, and various independent productions.  Will would like to thank each and every audience member for supporting this great icon of Saskatoon and these great dramatic works on behalf of the original William, Mr. Shakespeare.
