Janet Kish

Janet_KishJoseph Joubert wrote "To teach is to learn twice." This certainly rings true for Janet who has had the privilege of working as a theatre educator for well over three decades. During this time, she has worked with thousands of students exploring the art of acting, directing, theatre design and playwriting.

She herself has directed, written and produced dozens of plays over the years. Since retiring from the classroom in 2012, Janet has gone on to working freelance as a dramaturg and mentor with CSARN, an adjudicator for the National Theatre School Drama Festival (Formerly Sears), a drama workshop leader, a jurist for playwriting competitions and a social media content writer for various theatre groups.

Her most recent directorial works include The Penelopiad (Theatre Mowat), Antigone (Alumnae Theatre), and With Love and a Major Organ (MDS Canadian Play Festival). Her last script The Kiss was chosen to be one of the plays to be showcased at the Newmarket National Play Festival in 2018. Janet’s other true loves include travel and photography.
