Staging The Future at Theatre Ontario

Theatre Ontario is pleased to announce that we have received a grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation for “Staging The Future—Advancing Leadership to Ontario’s Theatre Community.”

This project is the next step in our comprehensive strategic branding and organizational review. We have received $45,400 over one year to hire external expertise and conduct an organizational review, branding and communications strategy to more effectively serve theatre artists and organizations across Ontario.  New programs to engage youth, cultural and regional communities will be created.

“Theatre is dynamic, relevant, and constantly evolving,” said Carol Beauchamp, Executive Director of Theatre Ontario.  “With this in mind, I am pleased to announce that with the support of the Ontario Trillium Foundation, Theatre Ontario will be able to continue to evolve in order to meet the changing needs of our members and the theatre community.”

Ruby Lam, a member of the Board of the Directors of the Ontario Trillium Foundation, made the presentation at Theatre Ontario’s Annual Meeting on May 25.  In her presentation, she congratulated Theatre Ontario for both our community-building accomplishments and our recognition of the challenges we face.  She said that the OTF was “the producer behind the scenes” while we were “the stars out on stage, in the communities.”

Congratulations also to Theatre Ontario member organizations who received grants from the Ontario Trillium Foundation in this application round: Brant Theatre Workshops, Burl-Oak Theatre Group, Drayton Entertainment, The Greely Players, Native Earth Performing Arts, Owen Sound Little Theatre, Port Stanley Festival Theatre, Sudbury Theatre Centre, and Westben Arts Festival Theatre.
