7 Days In Ontario Theatre

From Us
  • We’re grateful for the responses so far to our survey of the Ontario theatre sector; this is a terrific opportunity to work with us as we build a stronger Theatre Ontario—take this opportunity to have your say
  • Our second Theatre Ontario Festival production was chosen: Theatre Windsor will represent the Western Ontario Drama League on May 21 with their production of Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? by Edward Albee; the final two productions will be known after the weekend of April 2-3
  • Last Friday, I was part of a Twitter chat, organized by Praxis Theatre—participants from across Canada (and a few from the United States) came together under the #auddev hash-tag to make connections and have a good conversation about a variety of issues
From The Wire
  • Lorraine Kimsa Theatre for Young People announced their 2011-12 season, which includes a significant change to the theatre: beginning July 1st, Lorraine Kimsa Theatre for Young People will return to the name it was given in 1966 by founder Susan Douglas Rubes—Young Peoples Theatre (YPT) [link is a PDF file]
  • A memorial for actor Peter Donaldson will be held at the Stratford Shakespeare Festival next month – join in the celebration of the life of this remarkable man.  Date is Sunday, April 17, 2 pm at the Festival Theatre, 55 Queen Street, Stratford.  A tribute page can be found on the Festival’s website – please share your memories of Peter
