I love diving into a brand new choreography, there are always so many unexplored possibilities and Renata Soutter's piece Flesh and Spokes for Propeller's upcoming show at the Great Canadian Theatre Company is no exception!

Every day I’m reminded of the impact and importance that theatre has in the lives of the people around me. That’s not hard to believe since I work in theatre though. I’m surrounded by actors, technicians, administrators and box office employees who make their living off of theatre in Ottawa or throughout Canada. I’m also constantly interacting with people that don’t work in theatre, but people who are lovers of theatre that are just as invested in it.

Today GCTC launched their 41st season and we couldn’t be happier about it. This marks the third season programmed by Artistic Director Eric Coates and it’s a got a lot of things to be excited about. The 2015-2016 season offers up political scandal; a tribute to our veterans; a local family holiday story; international intrigue; chilling vengeance and a visit from the Queen. The new season, subscription and ticket information are available on GCTC.ca along with a video of Eric Coates, Hugh Neilson and the staff of GCTC introducing the new season.

On April 27, 2015 there will be a symposium held on underrepresentation and gender inequities in the theatre industry (see information on poster below). If you happen to be in Toronto for this day-long event I encourage you to attend. Information on best practices and actions to promote change will be gathered and shared in various ways including at the Professional Association of Canadian Theatre (PACT) Conference and AGM in May.

The 40th Anniversary Playwriting contest is now closed and we are pleased to announce the winners. We received many exciting submissions and were wowed by the diverse ways these new voices interpreted the lines of inspiration, drawn from GCTC's history of past productions. Artists and educators Mary Ellis, Laurie Koensgen, and Kristina Watt and I pored over the short plays and had a lively debate about each of their merits.
