Intrepid Theatre, home of Uno Fest and Victoria Fringe Festival has recently hired Sean Guist as Marketing & Development Coordinator, an exciting and challenging new opportunity at a staple company in Victoria's arts scene.
Guist directed Side by Side by Sondheim in Victoria this spring for Saltwater Inc. This musical revue show features the work of Broadway and film composer Stephen Sondheim including numbers from Company, West Side Story, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, A Little Night Music and Follies.
Norm Foster's Wrong For Eachother is next up in the summer, this charming two-hander is still in the pre-production planning stages but is slated for a venue in Summer 2013.
Lambert Academic Publishing has expressed interest in publishing Guist's thesis, "From Our Sex to Our Souls: Directing Michel Marc Bouchard's The Madonna Painter."
Every actor, designer or director has a "bucket list" or list of shows that they have tucked away as a show they would love to work on, here is mine:
