RBC Apprentice Writer/Performers

Shaemus Swets is a curious actor born and raised on the land of the Lekwungen, Songhees, Esquimalt, and W̱SÁNEĆ peoples, colonially known as Victoria, British Columbia. He recently graduated from Sheridan College’s Honours Bachelor of Musical Theatre Performance Program. Now, he is thrilled to dive in, and swim around in this industry. Shaemus has an unyielding love for acting, music, the natural world, and creating theatre that challenges one to live their life (even a little bit) differently after consuming it. He is particularly curious about both modern and contemporary plays and music, and/or reimagining them. Recent credits include: AN INCOMPLETE LIST… (Makers Ensemble/TO Fringe), JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR, TURN THE PAGE, AN INCOMPLETE LIST, (Theatre Sheridan) KENSINGTON (First Drafts – Theatre Sheridan + The Musical Stage Co). Up next, you can catch him in The Musical Stage Co’s New Works Festival, in AFTER THE RAIN, and COWBOY TEMPEST CABARET.

I send infinite thanks to my dear friends, my family, and my partner Tk, that make my life as an actor possible (and really super fun). Love you! @_Shaemus
