Next Generation Showcase

Showcase2018 WarmupsTheatre Ontario's Next Generation Showcase is our annual January event that provides graduating students of post-secondary conservatory theatre training programs with the opportunity to audition for industry professionals.

The event is attended by artistic directors, freelance directors, casting directors, and agents who are signed to the EIC or members of TAMAC.

Besides the students showcasing their talent, we also have several opportunities for students, faculty, and industry professionals to meet and network with each other at our networking parties.

Students also have the opportunity to attend an industry panel.
