  • 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.
  • Directors Intensive on April 20 to 21 in Toronto – This two-day workshop is designed for experienced directors in both the community theatre and professional realms.  The intensive will concentrate on the art of making the work as specific as possible; exploring how to get what the playwright intended onto the stage in a simple and detailed fashion.
