Job Opps, Job Descriptions and Things on your Timeline

CAHOOTS THEATRE COMPANY is seeking applications for the position of ARTISTIC DIRECTOR

Cahoots Theatre Company has been dedicated to the creation, development and production of new Canadian plays that reflect our cultural diversity for 26 years.  Cahoots Theatre Company believes that theatre should reflect the richness, diversity, and complexity that we live daily. Diversity means more than race or nation of origin or ethnicity. It also encompasses gender, sexual orientation, ability, language, and class.  Cahoots is a registered charity.

Cahoots did a good job on their job description – on that note I found this article at bizlaunch the other day.

Finally for today (it’s Friday of a long week) a question that came up in Monday night’s class was on how to keep certain stories from specific people off your Facebook timeline – whether it’s items you’re sensitive to or you’re simply tired of cat pictures. It’s a combination of things – Facebook is something you can do your best to tailor to your individual needs. I still like the explanation I heard a while back – people can put whatever they want on their walls, and you can put whatever you want on your wall, and that news feed is just that – an aggregate of everyone’s whatever they want. If you don’t want to see certain stories there are things you can do, from hiding that person, to hiding certain stories, to changing the status of your friendship with that person. But it requires you to do something. Found this on my newsfeed.  Same folks who created the un-baby me app for folks who were tired of seeing so many pictures of their friends’ toddlers and tots.

Lisa and I were talking last night on the way home from The Whipping Man – it’s brilliant, by the way and you should go and see it –  about the fact that we’ve been part of five shows that have opened since February 7. An opening on February 7, February 14, March 1, March 14, March 21. We have been BUSY, and we’re proud of the work we’ve done. And today marks the first read through for another production.  Add that in with three teaching/guest speaker events this week, plus new client consults and RFPs and I’d say business is going well and I thank friends and colleagues and past and present clients.

Things I want to talk about next week include the power of hearing something on stage, not seeing it.

I also got to thinking about our city. I spent two days guest speaking at a school that is in the far reaches of East Toronto – a GO stop away from Pickering, and The Whipping Man is at the Toronto Centre for the Arts in North York. Two places that are remarkably different from where I live in Parkdale.

Happy Friday!

Sunday Roundup – March 17

Busy week! Ching Chong Chinaman is  open, and The Whipping Man is in previews. Go see.

Upcoming things include The Charge of the Expormidable Moose (One Little Goat Theatre Company) and Sister Mary’s A Dyke?! (Cahoots Theatre Company). Small Print Toronto continues to be great  to work with, and we’re hard at work for online and new web stuff for OCAF.

Last week at the Sue Circle Ranch!

Bits and Pieces For Friday, and Going Viral

The new Facebook page seems to be going well, garnering a steady stream of likes, and I’m happy to have a spot that is handy for all my clients reviews and bits and pieces so they don’t get lost on my personal page.

By now you may or may not have heard that Google is shutting down their Google reader function. While the headline is a bit much (I wasn’t shocked or enraged, felt it was a bit of a drag but am not taking to the streets), it does pose the question, “what do I use now?”

Some have suggested converting to email subscriptions.

So – if you follow me on Google reader, and want to switch to email subscription, there is a handy form on the side of the page you can input your email address into and I will welcome you cheerfully. Recommended by Brian @copyblogger:

Fair enough.

But  I get an awful lot of email a lot of the time and the Reader kept things that I wanted to hear about separate and there was no inbox overload or accidentally deleting something I wanted to read. More than often a Reader item goes straight to my bookmarks. And I bet I have readers in the same boat who just plain don’t want more things in their inbox.

You do have options. And over at Copy Blogger, Mr. Clarke has written a good article about them –  I myself signed up for Feedly and it’s pretty much a one click changeover.

That’s all for today – it’s a Sunday coffee and paperwork kind of day. Happy St. Patrick’s Day if you’re celebrating!
