Hi, my name is Cameron, I am a Brampton born and raised actor. I started doing theatre when I got accepted into an arts program in high school and continued my professional training at Sheridan College and the University of Toronto Mississauga.
For the past 4 years I have been an actor at The Shaw Festival appearing in productions of Getting Married, SEX by Mae West, Henry V, Hound of The Baskervilles, Dracula & The Madness of George III.
Some of my other recent credits include the world premier of Happy Birthday Baby J, ShadowTheatre; Alice The Magnet, Theatre Animal; Troilus and Cressida, Secret Shakespeare Series; Blacktop Sky, Lower Ossington Theatre; TOUGH!, Canadian Rep Theatre; Common Ground, Toronto Fringe; Animal Nature, Clay and Paper Theatre; Clybourne Park, The Seagull, Orestes, Theatre Erindale.
When I am not performing I am likely reading, watching whatever is new on Netflix or working on some of my own writing. Keep in touch with me on social media by following me on Instagram &Twitter @Camm_grant
In an alternate universe I would have been performing at The Shaw Festival this season as Charley in Charley's Aunt and John Nevins in Trouble In Mind
Today’s the day. If Charley and Jack don’t tell Amy and Kitty how they feel about them, the college term will finish and they may never see them again. But their plan to invite the young ladies for lunch depends on the presence of Charley’s visiting Brazilian aunt. When she lets them down at the last moment, all hope seems to have gone. Except that their friend, Fancourt Babberley, happens to be on his way to a fancy-dress party … hilarity ensues in this laugh-out-loud comedy.

This should have been the first play by a black woman on Broadway. But in 1955 Alice Childress refused to have it staged on the Great White Way. Why? Because it is a play about white people putting on plays about black people, and the compromises that black artists have to make to work in the prevailing culture. Childress chose not to make the kind of compromise that Willetta, the heroine of her play, has spent her life wrestling with. A devastatingly observant satire on the rehearsal hall as a microcosm of society. This funny and moving play is a piece for our times.
