In this program celebrating the performing arts, Guy will discuss the art of directing, specifically the current production of 'Honus and Me' and the upcoming premiere of Jeff Daniel's new play 'Escanaba In Love.' Guy Sanville celebrated his eleventh anniversary as Artistic Director of The Purple Rose Theatre Company on May 1st. He has directed over twenty productions for the company and has received the Detroit Free Press Excellence in Theatre Award for Best Director four times.

Guy Sanville has appeared in seven plays for the Rose, most recently as Brock in Born Yesterday and Stu in Boomtown.

A magical family comedy, this play, which runs through September 2, tells the story of a little league player who finds the most valuable baseball card in the world.
