Andreja is committed to growing professional theatre in Mississauga, where she lives now. To pursue this goal, Crane Creations Theatre Company was incorporated as a not for profit in 2015. Since the beginning Crane Creations was conceived with sustainable growth in mind. For the first few years, we were gathering information; we were meeting with regular people, talked to them about why they go to theatre or why they don’t. We were meeting local artists, organizations, students and learning about how to deal with some obvious obstacles in growing a sustainable professional theatre company in Mississauga, like the sprawling size and lack of transit, flight of artists to Toronto and cultural specificity of the city and Region of Peel. Careful planning led to developing a company focusing on growing local audience and supporting local artists, while working provincially, nationally and internationally.
