Catch the Keys’ Beth Dart took part in Magnetic North Theatre Festival‘s intriguing panel discussion The Business Side of Theatre on June 20. An in-depth and practical conversation about the realities of starting and running your own theatre company in today’s economic and theatrical climate. How do we begin? Should we even begin given the companies and theatre programs which are closing their doors across the country? How do we survive? How do we measure success? How does our art stay relevant?
Other panelists included Andria Wilson, Producer, 2b Theatre Company; Simon Mallet, Artistic Producer, Downstage; Cindy Reid, Managing Director, The Cultch; Eric Epstein, Artistic Director, Yukon Arts Centre.
Magnetic North is Canada’s national festival of contemporary Canadian theatre. Thank you for inviting Catch the Keys to participate!
