Greetings and welcome to Dwight McFee. Been a wonderful ride! Some 40 plus years. Spent the first 25 out West on the regional theatre circuit based in Vancouver in the winter and movies and TV in summer and fall. CBC Radio Feb and March. X-Files, MacGyver, Outer Limits, movies of the week etc as you can see from the resume. Professional life changing experiences playing Walt Disney in Walt and Roy or Teach in American Buffalo or Raul in Extremities or Toby Belch in Twelfth Night or Rink Rat Brown in Life After Hockey or Pierre St. Pierre in Dry Lips Aught to Move to Kapuskasing. Indebted to agent Richard Lucas for love and support of a nurturing community. Dwight is proud of his two Jessie’s, Best Actor and Body of Work.
Then I fell in love with Cayle Chernin and moved to Toronto. And Dwight McFee had a life! Other than the love affair with acting. Highlights include Second String with Jon Voight, Aldrich Ames, Snow Falling on Cedars, Celeste in the City, Designated Survivor, Saving Hope etc. Theatre; The Drawer Boy, Someone is Going to Come, Dracula, Having Hope at Home, Mourning Dove, Criminal Genius, Same Time Next Year etc.
Sadly, Cayle died in 2011. Under the leadership of Kevin McCormack at Equity Showcase and colleagues David McNiven, David Gale, Kirsten Bishopric and Lisa Baylin, Equity Showcases’ The Cayle Chernin Awards have been presented to emerging or discipline transitioning female artists to assist in the creation of a new work for the past nine years. Since its inception in 2012 The Cayle Awards in Media Arts and Theatre; Production and Development is one of the largest awards in Ontario, having provided over $120,000 in cash, goods, and services to empower Women in the Performing Arts. CSARN’s Mentoring Program is a proud sponsor of the Cayle Chernin Awards.
Who knows what the future brings!
