The Crucible
The Crucible
The building of a pie...fit for a Queen!
Stephanie Venerus, our Head of Properties for the 2017/2018 Season, has had her hands full this season building some pretty interesting things. From the bottle of "Atrocity" perfume in Hedwig and the Angry Inch, to the over-sized dictionary of Spelling Bee and the poppet in The Crucible, Stephanie's job is varied, to say the least!

Our upcoming production of Titus Andronicus has Stephanie trying out her skills as a baker of revenge-filled pies. Spoiler alerts and cautions to those with weak stomachs!

Calling all Dancers
The U of T Festival of Dance (Canada’s Largest University Dance Festival) is now accepting participant submissions - with a deadline of FEBRUARY 1, 2018!

Created 23 years ago as an avenue to provide dance groups on campus the opportunity to perform on stage for an audience, the Festival of Dance has now grown into a celebration of the diversity and prosperity of the U of T dance community. Past events have included over 60 different dance pieces, well over 200 performers and an impressive variety of dance forms including jazz, ballet, ballroom, modern, contact improv, hip-hop, musical theatre, Irish, Latin, and Egyptian belly dancing, just to name a few. With such an abundance of dance groups associated with U of T, participation in the festival is a great opportunity for dance groups to interact, collaborate and promote their own work and ventures.
