Join us at Theatre Ontario Next Generation Showcase

When: Sunday, January 18 and Monday, January 19, 2015

Where: Young Centre for the Performing Arts
Michael Young Theatre
50 Tank House Lane, Toronto

We warmly invite Directors, Artistic Directors, Producers, Casting Directors, Agents EIC signed or TAMAC members, and other Industry Professionals to join us for our annual showcase of graduating student talent.

For the first time, we will have electronic school kits hosted on Casting Workbook, which will be accessible on tablets, laptops, and smart phones before, during, and after the Showcase event (Wi-Fi is available in the venue).

In the days prior to the Showcase, all attending industry professionals will receive an email with links to each school’s page, containing the headshots and CVs of each performing student.  (Having a Casting Workbook account is not required to view these links.)

As this is a transition year, we will still have the traditional hardcopy school kits available at the event for those who want them. You will also still receive a hardcopy one-pager from each school with a listing of the students’ performance pieces, in order of presentation.

Any feedback or questions on this new initiative can be directed to Erin Keating, Program Coordinator,416.408.4556 x.12 or

R.S.V.P. to the Next Generation Showcase Required by Wednesday, January 14, 2015
Please call 416.408.4556 x.10 or email
