Philippa Williams (they/she)
Interim General Manager
[email protected]

Philippa (they/she) is a regular old theatre rat from England, best known for diving headfirst into every opportunity possible, and failing to own a decent winter coat.

Phil first joined Saskatoon Summer Players in 2017 and has been a frequent flyer ever since, both onstage and off. Their skills range from performing, to production managing, to painting sets, and more. When they're not steering the ship at SSP or prancing about in costume, Phil is also the Community Relations Manager for 25th Street Theatre, working on their next production and the Saskatoon Fringe Festival. Recently she also had the pleasure of performing on the Wheatland Express Train with Buttered Ghost Theatre, although she's sure that the mayoral election was rigged...

Above all else, Phil is passionate about building better theatre practices, where the workers are valued as much as their work.
