Gordon Tanner


B: March 8, 1968

Gordon Tanner’s acting career began when he was working on his Master’s degree in Biosystems Engineering at the University of Manitoba. Preoccupied with his studies, he made a wrong turn that led to auditions for a production of Troilus and Cressida. Sensing serendipity, he stayed and was cast in a major role. He loved the experience so much he never went back to engineering.In 1995, he cofounded the Royal Liechtenstein Theatre Company which has collectively written and performed 14 full-length sketch comedy productions. Other theatre credits include Endgame for Winnipeg`s Becket Fest 2000, and as Rosencrantz (and five other characters) in a national tour of Hamlet with the English Suitcase Theatre.
