Sunday Roundup – May 26

moose13rv2It’s apparently the end of May. Please let the weather know.

Today’s your last chance to experience The Charge of the Expormidable Moose with the folks at One Little Goat. You can also hit The Dumbwaiter and previews have begun  for Sister Mary’s a Dyke. I was at dress rehearsal last week. It’s enchanting. And if you went to Catholic school – pick a joke, any joke.

Personally? I’m off to be on a panel  – Fresh Ideas in Puppetry Day  -We’ll be discussing the theme of producing and working with producers, and marketing for theatre, facilitated by Dahlia Katz. Other panelists include  Louise Lapointe of Casteliers in Montreal and Anne Barber of Shadowland Theatre. Fresh Ideas Day is an annual mini-conference and festival showcasing artists, both emerging and established, who are taking new and ground-breaking directions in puppetry. This one day convivial gathering is packed full of presentations, demonstrations and discussions, and culminates in an evening of short, fresh works-in-progress along with excerpts from new works. Robert Gill Theatre. Looking forward to it!

Last week! My GOODNESS what a week and you all know why so I won’t even get into that part of it

Uh – thanks? Edited

Take our Junk Mail – please?

It’s Come to This, Has It?

Sunday Roundup – May 19

What a – week. SO much going on in the theatre world with One Little Goat continuing to get amazing reviews for The Charge of the Expormidable Moose, The Dumbwaiter opening at Odyssey Studio, Sister Mary’s a Dyke gearing up to preview on the 25th of May, and Atrium Theatre bringing us Midlife Crisis, inspired by M.Frisch’s novel Gantenbein for three nights at the top of June.

No post tomorrow – it’s a holiday.  But I think Tuesday will bring the second post in what I feel like could be a sad, sad series entitled “Dear Rob.

A Play Reading and The Harold Awards!

What You’ve Got is What I Need

Infographics and an Article or Two. Maybe three.

To add to our content today, our intrepid Communications Coordinator Lisa has created the post below from a discussion we had on the Queen car westbound. I like the look of all these folks – they’ve been a pleasure to work with, and we’ll work together again.

When I arrived at 288 Queen Street for the Sister Mary production meeting, I didn’t expect to know anyone but Sue in the room. I left realizing just how small the Toronto theatre scene is. Here is a quick visual for some (this is in no way complete) of the connections we’ve had between shows at Sue Edworthy Arts Planning.

 It seems that every time I meet a new person in the theatre world I soon find that I know of their work, or have worked with someone they’ve worked with, or am friends with their friends. People often complain about this becoming claustrophobic or ‘incestuous’, but the reality is: people who do good work continue to work together.

 Reputations and relationships matter, and even in a city of 2.615 million people, amid competition and the feeling of anonymity, communities arise. Like-minded people come together to create. Talent is rewarded and shared and I think it’s important to keep this in mind… both as a warning and as a celebration.

Sunday Roundup – April 26

shayshaytIt’s May starting this week, and The Charge of the Expormidable Moose is opening on the 10th – small house, large cast, amazing show, so best get your tickets soon! After that we have The Dumbwaiter at Odyssey Studios and MidLife Crisis at the Cameron and Sister Mary’s a Dyke?! at Aki Studios.
And there’s a great group show on at Pentimento through May 25th.
And The Shape of Rex for a week at the Royal in June.
And it’s the ninth anniversary of the mad craft shoppe and a show and sale at the Press Club to celebrate.
And the War of 1812 at the Young Centre is an incredible piece of theatre as always, I said after seeing it that only VideoCab and Mac Fyfe could send me home with a wildly inappropriate crush on Captain James Fitzgibbon.
And Simple Damned Device played a furious set of rhythm and bruise at Lee’s Palace last night.
Nothing to do in this city? Try harder.

About last week:

Sunday Roundup on a Monday

What’s YOUR link to the TAPA Audience Project?

Website changes, Some Participant feedback, the War of 1812

Next week is a busy one with a marketing and PR seminar for Fringe participants, and chaperoning one of the fantastic classes from Mowat as they venture into Hot Docs territory (that’s on too. Hot Docs. I repeat – try harder) and voicework for the YWCA Women of Distinction Awards and I’m looking forward to it all.

Supposed to be gorgeous out today, so this is an early post so we can all get out and enjoy it sooner than later.
