Welcome to our New Appointed Board Member for 2011-2012 and for 2011-2013 from QUONTA and the Northwest

Theatre Ontario welcomes Dr. Barry Freeman of Toronto who has been apointed to a vacancy on the Board, due to the resignation of Patrick Gauthier.

Dr. Barry Freeman is an Assistant Professor in Theatre and Performance Studies at the University of Toronto-Scarborough whose research involves Canadian theatre, drama-in-education, and ethics and interculturalism. Barry is a regular contributor to national and international theatre journals and is the Executive Editor of Theatre Research in Canada, Canada's only peer-reviewed theatre journal. Barry is a member of the Board of Directors of the Paprika Festival and has worked for Theatre Ontario in the past, as Summer Courses Youth Counsellor in 1999 and as Summer Courses Coordinator in 2000. "I wish to contribute my insight about theatre education to the board of Theatre Ontario to help shape and grow its services, training opportunities and profile. Some of my students are contemplating making those first steps towards a career in the arts, and I believe I have a good sense of what make them the future artists and audience members of tomorrow. Theatre Ontario offered me my first opportunities toward a career in the theatre, and I would like to help it do the same for others."
