Next Generation Showcase Schedule 2016

When: Sunday, January 17 and Monday, January 18, 2016
Where: Aki Studio Theatre
Daniels Spectrum
585 Dundas Street East, Toronto

Showcase Networking Party 2015We warmly invite Directors, Artistic Directors, Producers, Casting Directors, Agents EIC signed or TAMAC members, and other Industry Professionals to join us for our annual showcase of graduating student talent.

Similar to last year, we will have electronic school kits hosted on Casting Workbook, which will be accessible on tablets, laptops, and smart phones before, during, and after the Showcase event (Wi-Fi is available in the venue).

In the days prior to the Showcase, all attending industry professionals will receive an email with links to each school’s page, containing the headshots and CVs of each performing student.  (Having a Casting Workbook account is not required to view these links.)

As we are still transitioning to electronic kits, we will still have the traditional hardcopy school kits available at the event for those who want them. You will also still receive a hardcopy one-pager from each school with a listing of the students’ performance pieces, in order of presentation.

Any feedback or questions on this new initiative can be directed to Rebecca Ballarin, Professional Theatre and Education Manager, 416.408.4556 x.12, programs@theatreontario.org
