You want to make new theatre. We have a program for you.
In the spotlight at PTC:
The Vancouver Fringe Festival and PTC are calling for applications for the eighth year of the Fringe New Play Prize. Through the Fringe New Play Prize, PTC and the Vancouver Fringe offer BC artists a leg up in the process of creating and producing with material support. BC writers and producing teams with a project underway for the 2020 Fringe season are encouraged to submit. DEADLINE: FRIDAY OCTOBER 4, 2019!
This year’s PTC WrightSpace residency (January 10-19, 2020) welcomes Catherine Joell MacKinnon to Vancouver to develop her bilingual (ASL-English) play, Inaudibility World.
We are pleased to announce that, once again, the number of playwrights submitting to Block A, PTC’s popular program for emerging writers, has been plentiful, so four sessions are being convened, two in the fall and two in winter.
Our playwrights are working on some great projects.
Congrats to all the winners but especially to Lili Robinson, Joanna Garfinkel and the whole team of Mx at the Vancouver Fringe for winning the Cultchivating the Fringe Award! We knew this show had legs. #newplays #indietheatre #fnpp
Need a Sunday serenade? Check out this FREE event at The Dance Centre: choreographer Amber Funk Barton (the response.) and composer Marc Stewart will sing their fave pop songs and share their first songwriting collaboration. The songs are part of a new project – a PTC Company Collaboration project – called "How to Say Goodbye" with Heidi Taylor as dramaturg.
Congrats to all the GG nominees for Drama, but especially Tetsuro Shigematsu for 1 Hour Photo! This epic love story, about Donna Yamamoto's father Mas Yamamoto that encompassed the major events of the 20th century, was a PTC Company Collaboration project with VACT and Dramaturg Heidi Taylor. The show was directed by the inimitable Richard Wolfe #GGBook2019
