Camelot

Kaylee Harwood plays Guenevere with the sort of grounded exuberance the princess demands. She’s sweet and kind but also clever and fierce, playing both the beloved and the capable in equal measure. Her beautiful soprano helps matters greatly as the final necessary piece to creating a character around whom the disastrous love triangle can develop.

Kelly Bedard, My Entertainment World

Newcomer Kaylee Harwood possesses a wonderfully expressive voice which communicates Guenevere’s fear, love and feistiness, and her duet with Geraint Wyn Davies is beautifully moderated so not to overwhelm his softer vocals. Ms. Harwood’s Guenevere is not the frivolous queen of previous incarnations. Instead she is much more a stateswoman, a partner for Arthur.

The Bard and the Boards

Oh, and what a Guenevere we have. Kaylee Harwood has a spectacular voice that grabs us from the very first note she sings.

Joel Varty

“Strong buzz for festival newcomer Kaylee Harwood as Guenevere.

Dave McGinn, Globe and Mail

Harwood, making her debut on this side of the Prairies, is an excellent addition to Stratford Shakespeare Festival company – she gives feisty personality to the reluctant queen Guinevere [sic] and has a full, flavourful voice.
