Notes:

Guy Masterson has run his own theatre company (Theatre Tours International) since 1991 and has since presented over 120 productions. He is regarded as Edinburgh's most successful independent producer and TTI is officially the most highly awarded independent theatre company presenting at the Festival over 21 years culminating in being awarded its most prestigious accolade - The Jack Tinker Spirit of the Fringe Award in 2003. As a performer he won the Stage Award for Best Actor in 2001 and has been nominated a further 4 times. His production of MORECAMBE in 2010 won the Olivier Award for Best Entertainment. He splits his time as a director and performer, however, recent major roles include Oscar in THE ODD COUPLE and Dame Dotty La Douche in BEAUTY AND THE BEAST. Because of his many stage commitments, he has been largely unavailable for film and TV work, however, as of 2015, he is now looking to get back into the mainstream. Please call for availability.
