Youth on the Rise

The final performance for Sum Theatre’s Youth on the Rise Drama Program will take place next Friday night. It has been my privilege to lead these hard-working youth through a variety of theatre excercises and activities over the pas several months. Now it’s their time to share what they have learned with you!

Contact me for details of the performance.

Creative Saskatchewan and Magnetic North

I owe thanks to Creative Saskatchewan for retroactively funding my trip to Magnetic North last month. Through their Business Capacity Grant, I received some funds to offset the costs of the trip. The support is appreciated!

Magnetic North

Today was a travel day. I left Saskatoon at 5:30 this morning and am now safe and sound in Ottawa for the Magnetic North Theatre Festival. I’m so excited to be here to take a workshop, take in some great shows, and discuss theatre with colleagues from around the world.

A big week!

This week we begin tech for Tightrope – an inter-disciplinary performing arts event I’ve been helping to organize. I’m so excited to share this piece with you all! It combines theatre, film, spoken word, choral poetry, combat, and visual art into one nifty event. I’ve got a brand new play (Want In?) being premiered, I’m performing in Mexico City by the incredibly talented Canadian playwright Hannah Moscovitch, and I’ll be speaking some choral poetry with an exciting group of my peers.

Don’t miss Tightrope! Get your tickets here.

Things on the horizon!

I’ve been too busy working to post to this site, it seems! Well that’s rectified!

I’ve added photos and updated things around the site so my latest work is now represented.

Also, I’m about to start work once again with the Saskatoon Opera as Stage Director for their school tour. I’m also one of the leaders of an inter-disciplinary project called Tightrope which you should all check out at the end of May.

All my best,

Charlie

Saskatoon and Area Theatre Awards

Exciting news! I was just nominated for a Saskatoon and Area Theatre Award for Outstanding Emerging Artist.

The entire ensemble of Bottome’s Dreame was nominated for Achievement in Sound Design for the soundscapes we created together.

Plus, The Caretaker (which I assistant directed) was nominated 6 times (including for Del Surjik’s direction) and The Frenzy of Queen Maeve (for which I designed the lights) received 3 nominations.

Congrats to all the nominees (many of you friends). See you all on September 30th for the gala!

Welcome!

Now that I have some free time after a wonderful, hectic summer working on The Magic Flute, The Saskatchewan Playwright Center’s Spring Festival of New Plays, Carmen, and Bottome’s Dreame, I am ready to actually make my personal website happen! I’ve had a lot of fun building and updating the Embrace Theatre webpage (which everyone should check out to keep up to date with my work there) – now it’s time for some shameless self-promotion!
