Under Carol’s leadership, Theatre Ontario has undergone tremendous change, embracing new collaborative partnerships with theatre organizations, sponsors, and the broader arts ecology. These new partnerships have created more opportunities for our members and the theatre community to access programs and resources, so that together we can stage a vibrant and sustainable theatre community for today and tomorrow.
Over the last twelve months, thanks to the support of the Ontario Trillium Foundation, Carol has guided Theatre Ontario through a strategic organizational review which has resulted in the development of our rigorous workshop series; the formation of a committed and energetic Theatre Ontario Youth Advisory Council; mentorship training and learning circles for our Professional Theatre Training Program recipients; new partnerships, programs and networking opportunities for Next Generation Showcase; community theatre forums across the province; and the development of our vibrant new brand and website, which will be rolled out within the next 6 – 8 weeks.
Theatre Ontario is sorry to see Carol leave, but is delighted that she will remain in an advisory capacity over the next twelve months, which will ensure a seamless transition, continuity, and support for the Board and Staff of Theatre Ontario as we continue the momentum of bringing leadership and innovation to the theatre community for today and tomorrow.
The Staff and Board of Theatre Ontario are looking forward to the coming year, and continuing the exciting work on our organizational and program initiatives.
