Dates: Monday, January 25th - Thursday, January 28th, 2021
Next Generation Showcase will take place from Monday, January 25th - Thursday, January 28th, 2021 in a virtual capacity.
This unique event provides emerging theatre artists with the opportunity to introduce themselves to industry professionals, by showcasing their talents in front of casting directors, artistic directors, independent directors, producers, and agents. Many of the top theatre training programs from Ontario and beyond participate annually. Showcase was first founded with recent Ontario-based theatre school graduates in mind. Over time it has become clear that there are other pathways leading into the industry in Ontario for emerging artists, and for artists who identify as marginalized or who may be facing barriers to attending theatre schools. We created the New Faces category to create a space for folks whose journeys have led them to entering the Ontario theatre community recently, without attending an Ontario-based training institution.
Some examples of who we have in mind could be:
- Trans artists
- Newcomers to Canada
- Next-generation artists who have faced access barriers in theatre schools
- Recent (within 3 years) grads from training programs outside the province wishing to pursue their performing careers in Ontario
ELIGIBILITY: To be eligible to apply to “New Faces”, you must fulfill the following criteria:
- You have not participated in Next Generation Showcase in the past (in your current identity);
- You currently reside, or plan to reside, in Ontario
- You presently do not have an agent
- There are a very limited number of New Faces placements available. If the number of eligible applications that are received exceeds the number of slots available, Next Generation Showcase reserves the right to determine who will be selected
