Please RSVP for our Annual Meeting

Theatre Ontario invites our members to join us at our Annual General Meeting on May 26 at 1pm at the Robert Gill Theatre in Toronto.  We are pleased to welcome Autumn Smith as our keynote speaker at the meeting.  RSVPs are requested.

Autumn Smith is the Artistic Director and co-founder of MackenzieRo: The Irish Repertory Theatre Company of Canada, and her work reflects involvement in all three sectors of Theatre Ontario’s mandate—professional, community and educational—and in the diversity and connections between the sectors.  She is a past intern director in the Neil Munro Intern Directors Project at the Shaw Festival, and has served as an adjudicator for the Association of Community Theatres—Central Ontario and the Sears Ontario Drama Festival.  As an educator, she has worked with Tarragon Theatre, the Stratford-National Ballet Project, the Stratford Shakespeare Festival of Canada Shakespeare School, Equity Showcase Theatre, and is a featured artist with ART SMARTS, and Stagedoor Manor, an international training centre partnered with The American Theatre Wing.  Recent projects include an international workshop of the new Canadian work The Rake’s Progress: Do You Know Where Tom Rakewell Is? and directing for the double-bill/co-pro between Obsidian Theatre and MacKenzieRo; upcoming for her will be Bloodless for Theatre 20/Mirvish Productions.

We will also be welcoming Steve Beatty and Michael Kelly of Culture One / Mainway Hunter Critchton to make an important presentation on the innovative Arts Worker Health Insurance Program they have developed known as aWHIP.

Following the meeting, we will have an informal networking reception with light refreshments.
