Welcome Annette Procunier as Festival Adjudicator 2012

Theatre Ontario is pleased to announce that Annette G. Procunier will be the adjudicator for the 2012 Theatre Ontario Festival in Sault Ste. Marie.

“To be asked as an adjudicator to judge and teach about theatre is an honour and privilege for me that I shall always treasure,” said Annette.  “Theatre is a lifelong pursuit of expression that brings together all performance elements and leaves us striving for excellence, truth and community."

Annette has been involved in amateur and professional theatre for over forty years as a director, adjudicator and teacher.  Her work has taken her to Japan, Europe, the United States and across Canada.  She has adjudicated more than 120 festivals in the past 27 years, including being the only North American to adjudicate the IATA World Theatre Festival in Monaco.  Annette has also adjudicated the National Festival for the American Association of Community Theatre four times.  For her work as an Adjudicator in the United States she was made a Fellow of AACT in 2009 for “single-handedly raising the level of community theatre in America.”  She is the only non-American to hold this lifetime honour.  In 2010, Annette published the only textbook on adjudication Do You See What I See.  Annette was one of the founders of the Lighthouse Festival in Port Dover and is currently Artistic Director of New Actors’ Colony Theatre in Bala, Ontario where professional theatre in Canada started in 1939.

Theatre Ontario Festival 2012 will be held in Sault Ste. Marie from May 16 to 20, 2012 and is co-hosted by Theatre Ontario, Theatre SMC, and the QUONTA Drama Region.  For more information about the Festival, please visit the Theatre Ontario website.
