Youth Advisory Committee
Be the Voice of Youth in Theatre Today
We are currently seeking new members for our Youth Advisory Committee (YAC).
The YAC will be responsible for establishing and implementing a plan of action for the next twelve months with the aim of creating greater accessibility to youth interested in a career in theatre and/or youth passionate about fostering the next generation of theatre artists.
"Play Date", from the Youth Advisory Committee, was born out of the desire to help emerging artists feel situated in their larger theatre community even as they no longer have a school program to anchor them.
Seeking Course Proposals for Summer Theatre Intensive 2017
We are seeking proposals from theatre instructors for courses for our 2017 Summer Theatre Intensive.
Our 2017 program will be taking place in early-to-mid August 2017. These courses are targeted to participants between ages of 18 to 65 and should be of interest to community theatre practitioners and theatre professionals alike.
We are sad to share the news of the passing of two former Theatre Ontario Board members in the past month.
Andy Trasuk of Cornwall, passed away on October 12. Andy was a former member of our Community Theatre Committee and a past President of the Eastern Ontario Drama League.
Debra McLauchlan of St. Catharines, passed away on October 31. Debra was a member of our Youth Theatre Training Program jury and the president of the Board of Carousel Players. There is a visitation on November 4.
