Welcome Raeburn Ferguson as Professional Theatre and Education Manager

Theatre Ontario regretfully announces that Rachel Kennedy, Professional Theatre and Education Manager, is leaving Theatre Ontario. She is departing to join the staff of the Toronto Arts Council.

We are excited to welcome Raeburn Ferguson, who will be joining us as our new Professional Theatre and Education Manager.

"I have had an incredible experience here at Theatre Ontario and am so thankful for the staff, community, and member relationships that I have made over the past few years," said Rachel. "It has been a pleasure to be a part of such an essential, innovative, and supportive organization that actively seeks out new ways to lift up theatre artists across the province. Working here has been a source of inspiration for me in both my administrative and creative roles. While I will greatly miss the family we have created here in Suite #350, I am excited to see Raeburn take hold of the reigns and add her enthusiasm, drive, and flare to our programming!"

I look forward to strengthening these relationships and continuing the incredible work Rachel has done over the past few years with the organization."
