Bio – Jay Wilson

A lifetime in theatre both as actor and Arts Administrator. Company Manager for the National Tap Dance Co. Of Canada, Special Projects Gravenhurst Opera House, actor as well as Marketing and Development Associate with Theatre Collingwood.

A project with Guelph Museum’s Backyard Theatre program led to “JayWalking Guelph”, storytelling walking tours featuring true tales of murder, scandal and unusual history. Guests visit local limestone architecture and unique locations while Jay recites newspaper accounts, journal entries and 19th century poetry.

Lilt of Laughter, Trace of Tears, is not a walking tour but a one man show and a personal favourite of Jay’s.
