Kaylee Harwood: How To Cultivate Patience On Your Creative Journey
A little about Kaylee:
Born in London, Ontario and raised near Vancouver, Kaylee Harwood has worked in Theatre across North America from Broadway and Radio City Music Hall to the Stratford and Shaw Festivals. Kaylee’s skills and interests lie in new play and musical development, coaching, choreography, classical voice and dance, yoga, gardening and solo travel. Her appearance as Cosette in Les Misérables at the Arts Club won her the 2010 Sam Payne Award for Most Promising Newcomer at the Jessie Awards in Vancouver, and she revived the role in 2015 opposite her partner Sayer Roberts. She made her way east to the Festivals by way of Chemainus Theatre Festival, Western Canada Theatre, Citadel Theatre, La Jolla Playhouse and Rainbow Stage. Toronto appearances include world premieres at the Harold Green Jewish Theatre Company, Musical Stage Company, and Theatre20, the latter of which featured her in the Dora-nominated Bloodless. Television credits include Reign (CW), Good Witch (Hallmark) and Workin’ Moms (CBC) and she is currently on tour as a swing with Beautiful: The Carole King Musical across the US and Canada.
Kaylee has trained with Action Theatre Berlin, various voice/movement/Alexander instructors at the Shaw and Stratford Festivals, world-renowned voice teachers at Canada’s National Voice Intensive in Vancouver and Fitzmaurice Voice Technique, in addition to her degree in Theatre from Trinity Western University and her personal yoga practice. Her favourite book in the world is Franny & Zooey and even though she gives her copies away all the time, she always buys a new (used) copy to have close. She is currently obsessed with singer/songwriter Maggie Rogers and would love nothing more than to be/be best friends with Kate Winslet.
