You want to make new theatre. We have a program for you.
In the spotlight at PTC:
We are pleased to announce the participants in this year’s Block P (Producing): lee williams boudakian, Moses Clyde Caliboso, Rachael Goddard-Rebstein, Peg Keenleyside, Jessica Leung, Ariel Martz-Oberlander and Anoushka Ratnarajah. Over the next six weeks these five artists will be learning the ins and outs of indie producing with UpintheAir Theatre’s Daniel Martin and Dave Mott. Read their bios…
Playwrights Theatre Centre (PTC) currently has four volunteer positions available among its diverse and vibrant board of directors. We are seeking board members with an interest in how new Canadian plays are made, and a commitment to growing their own leadership skills.
Block A winter session mentor Joanna Garfinkel is experimenting with bringing this cohort of writers into PTC’s Test Kitchen for physically-based work to help with script writing. We asked her to share her thoughts about this unique process.
Our playwrights are working on some great projects.
"am a", Mindy Parfitt and Amber Funk Barton's new show that explores identity through the lens of neuroplasticity, has racked up great reviews. You can still catch the show at The Cultch until Saturday. #newplays #yvrtheatre
Access is a human right. Right now, d/Deaf artists do not have ongoing access to creative opportunities in the Vancouver theatre community. Work is beginning to address this exclusion, but in the meantime, there are artists whose creative drive shouldn’t be denied. PTC is partnering with Theatre Terrific, New(to)Town Collective, and The Story We Be in the launch of this crowdfunding campaign; what we see as an initial step to creating meaningful access, and to building an inclusive theatre community! Join us in this effort! Contribute today, and please spread the word!
