Community Theatre Forums

CommunityTheatreForumsTheatre Ontario ran a series of community theatre forums to provide a platform for discussion. The objective of these sessions was to gain insight into the key challenges and areas of opportunity that face community theatre in Ontario.

These discussions enabled us to share and identify opportunities to partner, and provide services and support such as advocacy, training, resources, and facilitation to our member community theatres.

Topics of discussion included, but were not limited to:

  • Audience Development
  • Membership Engagement
  • Workshop / Education Needs
