Darcy Wilson
This is Darcy Wilson’s first encounter with Artist’s Collective Theatre and it has been a wonderful experience. Having worked with a majority of the production team/cast on Diary of Anne Frank (Morpheus Theatre) is a big plus for Darcy because he gets to jump straight into the project without having to figure out artistic styles. A graduate from the University of Calgary, Darcy has been involved with stage and television in various levels of fervor for over twenty years. Look for him next as the apocalyptic preacher in the Zombie flick Breakdown Lane - currently in post production.
