Theatre Ontario Seeks Executive Director
Your years of experience in the not-for-profit sector have shaped your vision of a better Ontario. A bold arts advocate, your colleagues admire your visionary leadership, determination and skills. You know your way around a computer and a spreadsheet, your staff respects you, and sees you as a role model. You work effectively with Boards of Directors and with diverse stakeholders. And when you unite ideas and passion with skills and strategy, you make good things happen at your workplace, in your community and beyond.

Could Theatre Ontario be your next, big professional challenge? The application deadline is September 28.

The Art of Stage Combat
New Talent Scholarship recipient Mahlet Tesfu studied Stage Combat with Daniel Levinson at our Summer Theatre Intensive.

"The number one motto of our instructor Daniel, was 'safety first above all else.' He beat it into our heads that no amount of pressure, expectation or level of perfection was worth hurting ourselves over."
