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.

Here I am beginning the third week of rehearsals for The Best Brothers by Daniel MacIvor. This play is HILARIOUS, and so intricately written.  "Bunny" Best has become my new prophetess.  She affects me in my daily life now as I go to The Table Vegetarian Restaurant EVERY lunch and philosophize the meaning of life over delicious desserts.

This season, to celebrate GCTC's 40-year history of producing great Canadian plays, we decided to hold a playwriting contest.

 

The idea came up at the GCTC's 40th Anniversary Committee. This hard-working group of volunteers were brainstorming ideas about how to recognize the company's remarkable past and connect these memories with an exciting future to come.

This past week I had the delight of hanging a new exhibit at the Fritzi Gallery. We opened a new group exhibit titled Birds of a Feather and are very happy to say this exhibit is part of TD Canada Trust’s Then and Now Series for Black History Month. The exhibition features 10 of our own local artists, showcasing their recent work from 2014.

Happy New Year! Another year has gone by and a new one is on its roll, full of new hopes and new beginnings, new challenges and new achievements, and... a new Lawyer Play! Hard to believe how quickly the time went by since the last Lawyer Play. Seems like not too long ago we wrapped up the season and here we are again, at the foot of the mountain, ready to start the ball rolling on the next lawyer play adventure. It's a never-ending cycle of hard work, excitement build-up, gratitude and fun.

It has been a month since I started at GCTC as the new Managing Director and I have to first start off by acknowledging the very warm and supportive welcome I have received from everyone. It has been wonderful meeting so many new faces. It has also been very rewarding reconnecting with names and friends from a past and a time when GCTC was playing an integral role for me as an emerging theatre artist and practitioner in the early 1980s.
