Summer Ensemble Project
Dates: June and august
Location: 2359 Royal Windsor Drive
Eligibility: students, recent graduates of programs related to live theatre, and emerging artists under 30 years of age.
Every summer a group of emerging artists joins Crane Creations Theatre Company for an eight to ten weeks long exploration of theatre. We work on classical plays and develop new work, learn about professional theatre companies, international and Canadian, discuss what makes good theatre, and what should be produced in theatre today. We investigate what is theatre’s role in the past and in the future. This raw, honest and action packed skills training program aims at expanding ideas and knowledge about theatre while providing our artists with an unparalleled insight into the industry.
