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.
I am so proud and humbled to have been nominated for a Saskatoon and Area Theatre Award for Achievement in Directing for my work on Stop Kiss. That play received 3 other SATAward nominations (Outstanding Performance (Female) for Jenna-Lee Hyde, Outstanding Set Design for Jenna Maren, Outstanding Sound Design for Gilles Zolty. My collaborators Jenna Maren, Angela Kemp, and Dakota Hebert (on Stop Kiss, Stop Kiss and Saskatchewan Outdoors respectively) were also nominated for Outstanding Emerging Artist. Congrats to all the nominees! The awards ceremony takes place at the end of September!
I wrote an article for Saskatoon’s Theatre Blog entitled Working with Established Artists as an Emerging Artist. Check it out if you have some time!
