Meet the Cast! Ted “The Poet” Guillory, Jr. as Franco Wicks in TAG’s “Superior Donuts”

Ted The Actors’ Group is proud to showcase some of Honolulu’s finest talent. Meet Ted “The Poet” Guillory, Jr. as Franco Wicks in Superior Donuts!

Ted is a freshman at the University of Hawai’i at Mānoa, as well as in the world of theatre. However, Ted’s love and experience for stage performance evolves predominantly from his participation in poetry slams and open mic nights, where he is most in his element.

Ted was last seen in UH Mānoa’s production of Ruined, and is an aspiring actor, poet, and writer.
We asked Ted about his role of Franco Wicks, and this is what he had to say:
I absolutely love playing the character of Franco Wicks, for many reasons. From the first time I stood in front of the mirror, and recited Franco’s lines, “Someone [messed] up your donut shop,” and, “It’s like watching George Bush on Jeopardy,” I knew I wanted the role. He’s so brutally honest, and his sense of humor is so lovable (albeit frustrating). Because of this, I feel as though the audience starts to care for the kid, the same way Arthur does. This play is a wonderful experience, and I always look forward to every rehearsal. I get excited to see my fellow Donuts every night, and I hope to be involved in many more TAG productions in the future.
Superior Donuts will be running May 8-31, 2015.  Go to http://www.taghawaii.net or call 808-722-6941 for tickets.  Seats are going very fast!
