Notes for May

Heading home from Emerge Calgary on Monday night I was struck by what a wonderful experience the whole program had been: two days, two cities, eight post-secondary institutions, 64 graduates and nearly 90 theatre and film professionals from across the province. Amazing, right?

Emerge is 10 years old now, double digits, and while we didn’t have cake, we celebrated well and I couldn’t be happier to have been a small part of this special event. I want to toss out a bit of gratitude to all the venues, caterers, technicians, students, faculty and professionals who made Emerge such a beautiful experience.

Michelle Kennedy, Programmer

It is this commitment to community, celebration and education that makes Alberta the best place in Canada to make and be involved in theatre.

Thank you from everyone at Theatre Alberta for joining us for this wonderful event!

Michelle Kennedy
Programmer

ARTSTREK 2013 UPDATE

Artstrek 2013 is nearly 80% full. Thank you everyone who has applied thus far!

Thanks to our program expansion, we have not yet had to run a waiting list for students wanting to attend. However, we are starting to near the tipping point for certain categories, so if you are planning on coming but have not yet applied, please register as soon as possible.

That said, we still have ample room for young men in Explorations I and II. Remember, if you refer a friend, you will get your Artstrek 2013 tshirt free-of-charge! Teachers: if you would like more information about referring a student to Artstrek, please call us at 1-888-422-8160.

The Artstrek Registrar will start work later this month. Please bear with us as we sort through hundreds of registrations - we will contact your family with specific program information as soon as possible. In the meantime, please join our Artstrek Facebook event for general program updates, photos and fun facts!

 

THE KEITH EWASIUK MEMORIAL AWARD - DEADLINE: MAY 24TH

Artstrek

The Keith Ewasiuk Memorial Award will be awarded to an Alberta student who exemplifies leadership in the LGBTQ community at their school or in their community.

The inaugural scholarship will be awarded to a student attending Artstrek 2013. It is our hope to honour a student who is fearless, compassionate and deeply committed to equality and respect for all.

Artstrek students can apply for the Keith Ewasiuk Memorial Award at the same time they register for Artstrek. However, a student can choose to email an application separately to Michelle Kennedy, Programmer at [email protected].

If you have already registered for Artstrek 2013, you may stil apply for the Keith Ewasiuk Memorial Award. If you are successful, your program fee will be fully refunded! Please click here for more information on award criteria. The deadline to apply is May 24.

 

THEATRE ALBERTA ARTSTREK SCHOLARSHIPS

Artstrek

Theatre Alberta strives to ensure that Artstrek is accessible to all Albertans regardless of ability to pay. We offer a limited number of partial scholarships for applicants in financial need. Scholarships range from 25% to 75% of the Artstrek application fee.

There is no deadline to apply for a Theatre Alberta Artstrek Scholarship. However, scholarship requests submitted after May 24 will be considered only if funds are available.

We understand that issues concerning financial need can be sensitive. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Theatre Alberta to discuss your specific situation.

 

THE THEATRE ALBERTA PLAYBILL 2013-2014 COMING SOON

Theatre Alberta's Playbill is the single most comprehensive list of Alberta theatre season information - listing productions from nearly every theatre company in the province.

Later this month, Theatre Alberta will send our member organizations an email request for upcoming season data to be included on the 2012-2013 Playbill poster. We will also request production photos from last season for consideration to be included on the poster.

Your theatre season data is also made available on our website and our web-app for mobile devices. We promote shows featured in Playbill every month in Theatre Buzz in our Shows Opening section (scroll down to see!)

Keep an eye on your inboxes - we are very excited to see what you have in store...
