Wow, it’s our 25th Anniversary and we have so much to tell you! First up, big news! Artistic Co-Director Caroline Howarth is moving into a new role at Concrete as Artistic Associate. This is to accommodate her appointment as chair of Fine Arts at Concordia University College of Alberta. Congratulations Caroline! That means that Co-founder and Artistic Co-Director Mieko Ouchi will be debuting as Artistic Director beginning this fall. We are also thrilled to announce that Interim General Manager Mary-Ellen Perley has become our full-time General Manager. Finally, we are so pleased to welcome Cat Walsh as our new Sales and Booking Coordinator. Hooray team!
Kicking off our Anniversary Season
is the second pilot year of The Bully Project
. Two versions of the play, targeted at Grades 4-6 and Grades 7-9, explore the issue of bullying using a powerful interactive style that welcomes the ideas of students, and lets them try out their suggestions with professional actors. Developed with support of ECF, Teachers are already raving:
“The Bully Project was AWESOME! The information they shared was outstanding. I would strongly recommend this production to ALL Elementary and Jr. Highs in our district.”
Lynette Thom, Assistant Principal, Westboro Elementary.
Happy Fall everyone!
