Browsing The Bulletin Board

Tim Chapman, our Professional Theatre Coordinator for the past seven years, will be retiring from Theatre Ontario in July 2013.  We are now beginning the challenging task of finding his successor.  Reporting to the Executive Director, the Program Coordinator oversees the daily operation of Theatre Ontario's programs and services and serves as the organization's key liaison with the professional theatre and post-secondary theatre education communities in Ontario, as well as providing career counselling, the development and provision of workshops and seminars to support the professional community, developing and implementing special projects, and contributing to news and stories of interest for and about the theatre community.  Read the full posting on our website
