Skeena Zone of Theatre BC
Get ready for the SKEENA Zone Drama Festival!
Terrace Little Theatre is hosting this event after a five year hiatus. Volunteer Terrace, Astral Media and Ideal Office Solutions join the little theatre that could in reviving this proud tradition for northwest BC which has a reputation for being a contender at the provincial level. The festival is adjudicated by professional film & TV actor and theatre director Garry Davey.
Garry Davey has been the Artistic Director for TheatreOne in Nanaimo and of the William Davis Centre for Actor’s Study in Vancouver where he taught acting and directed for many years. A graduate of The Vancouver Playhouse School, he has worked extensively as an actor in theatres across the country, as well as appearing in many television productions and feature films including recurring episodes of Da Vinci's Inquest; Cold Squad, and The X-Files. Garry recently appeared in Peter Shaffer’s Amadeus, and The Miracle Worker by William Gibson for The Chemainus Theatre Festival playing Captain Keller, a role which he later reprised for Western Canada Theatre in Kamloops. He has been directing for over 20 years - recent productions include Tamarack by Edward Kuhn, Wrong for Each Other by Norm Foster, The Drawer Boy by Michael Healey and Shirley Valentine by Willy Russell, all for TheatreOne, as well as independent productions of Marion Bridge by Daniel McIvor, and The Occupation of Heather Rose by Wendy Lill. In 2007, he adapted the script and co-directed a version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream for TheatreOne’s Young Company.
In the course of his career Garry has developed his craft with master teachers from across Canada, New York, LA, Paris and London. For the past 14 years, he has also shared his experience with Theatre BC in many ways - as a frequent Zone Festival adjudicator, as workshop play director, as well as teaching acting and directing workshops. He has also served as a juror for Theatre BC’s Canadian National Playwrighting Competition and as director/dramaturge at the New Play Festival. In 2005 he had the honour to adjudicate the Mainstage Festival in Nanaimo. Garry lives with his partner, Donna, in a sweet little house on Gabriola Island.
