Performing Arts

Hosted from March to April 2020, this iteration saw theatre director Michelle Thorne engaging as the Spring 2020 Artist in Residence and supported her journey as she directed a community theatre run of The Great Gatsby at the Keyano Theatre & Arts Centre. Though the theatre run was cancelled in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Thorne continued to offer a 4-week “Directing from Script to Stage” program for local theatre artists. Workshops included such elements as script analysis, design concepts and collaborations, stage management, auditions, casting, marketing and publicity and culminated with participants creating their own Director’s Proposal by the end of the workshop series.
