Showcase Panels 2013

As part of Theatre Ontario Showcase 2013, we also held professional panels on Sunday evening.  This entertaining and informative event gives the graduates a chance to talk to industry professionals about the realities of the business from a variety of perspectives.

“The Business of Casting” panel featured:

  • Casting directors Jenny Lewis and Sara Kay from Lewis Kay Casting (CBC series Republic Of Doyle)
  • Agent Pam Winter (from Gary Goddard Agency)
  • Artistic Director Matthew Jocelyn (Canadian Stage Company)
  • Artistic Director Allen MacInnis (Young People’s Theatre)

The “Surviving a Career in Acting / Love Of Acting” panel shared heir personal experiences in the business, and featured:

  • Ted Dykstra
  • Michael Healey
  • Mike Ross
  • Pamela Sinha

Both panels were moderated by Theatre Ontario’s Professional Theatre Coordinator Tim Chapman, and held at Young People’s Theatre.

We were also thrilled to be able to host a Showcase Networking Party for the participants on Monday, an evening of fun, food, mixing and mingling, sponsored by Sheridan College and Jack Astor’s in the St. Lawrence Market.
