Browsing The Bulletin Board

Happy World Theatre Day!  This year, the 2013 Canadian World Theatre Day message is written and read by Micheline Chevrier in both English and French.  The Canadian WTD message is commissioned each year by the Professional Association of Canadian Theatres, the Playwright's Guild of Canada, and l'Association des théâtres francophones du Canada.

Registration is still open for these upcoming Theatre Ontario workshops:
  • Social Media Connecting with an Audience Online tomorrow in Blyth – This is your opportunity to learn the whys and hows of a successful web presence, and how to market yourself and your organization effectively.  The morning session presented by Paul Snepsts will explore the Why and How of a Successful Web Presence, including some practical tips for getting your website started or upgraded.  The afternoon session presented by Michael Wheeler, will explore Social Media and Online Engagement and how best to engage with your audience, which social media options are best for you, including the latest in live blogging and tweeting.
  • Playwriting: How to Self-Edit and Critique on April 5 to 7 in Toronto – Plays are not written in the first draft. Plays come to life in rewrites. But re-write how? What if we don't know how to move our work forward? What if we don't know how to critique our own work? What if we aren't sure how to process feedback from others? This workshop offers tools and techniques for playwrights who have a play “under construction.”
  • PTTP Talkback and Mixer on April 8 in Toronto – Looking to further or change your career?  Develop a new skill?  Mentoring through Theatre Ontario’s Professional Theatre Training Program—funded by the Ontario Arts Council, an agency of the Government of Ontario—is a valuable way of learning from experienced professionals, benefiting from one-to-one guidance, making valuable connections and expanding your network and enhancing your career opportunities.  Come meet with past recipients Laura Nanni, Peter Pasyk, Tanisha Taitt, and Tim Chapman, our Professional Theatre Coordinator (and a past recipient himself.)
  • Self-Start: The Basics of Producing on April 10 in Toronto – If you want to do a show but have never produced professionally before, and if you want to know what questions to ask first, this session is for you!  Self-Start is a practical seminar facilitated by Tim Chapman, Professional Theatre Coordinator.
  • Check out all of our upcoming courses and workshops, including accessibility, our directors intensive, our summer courses, and more.
