Even More ‘Jail Baby’ Biographies

Spring has sprung! Believe it or not Winnipeggers – the melting of the snow, the trees beginning to bud (hopefully soon) and a new play is on the horizon! This change in the weather can only mean that the world premiere of Jail Baby is near! After several years in development, we are excited to finally be bringing this meaningful and timely play to the stage.

If you have been following our blog lately, you know that we have been featuring biographies of some of the Jail Baby cast members. This week we feature the final three actors! In the weeks to come, we’ll get a little more interactive and feature interviews with our cast, plus features on the creative team and the announcement of our cameo appearances by lawyers. Have any questions for the cast that you’re just dying to know the answer to? Send them our way! (info at sarasvati dot ca with the subject “Jail Baby blog questions”)

On with the biographies!

Shannon Guile photoActor, writer, comedian, stunt performer and mime artist, Shannon Guile is a woman of action. Shannon is best known for her comedic stylings with two-time Canadian Comedy Award Nominated troupe, Hot Thespian Action. Shannon has also graced independent and professional stages around Manitoba, including WJT’s Death of A Salesman and MTC’s The History of Manitoba. Always physical, Shannon spends a chunk of her time, toppling over things and getting punched in the face, as seen in Space Network’s Todd and the Book Of Pure Evil and Universal Studio’s Beethoven’s Christmas Adventure.
