This year, we are thrilled to be entering one of the most pivotal moments in the company’s history: Shakespeare in Action will be moving into a permanent home. We have been invited by Toronto Artscape Inc, a significant player in Toronto’s arts landscape, to be a resident company in one of their newest real estate projects, the Artscape Weston Common, located in the heart of the Weston community.
This is a transformative moment for Shakespeare in Action as we become an agent of change in Toronto’s cultural landscape. With a permanent home, we intend to:
- Grow our educational programs and offer professional theatre training for youth;
- Recruit professional arts organizations to program cultural events in our studio;
- Curate Weston's first professional season of theatre, dance, and music.
From our inception, Shakespeare in Action has been invested in making Shakespeare accessible to everyone, regardless of age and income-level. In order to make an immediate impact in Weston, we need to make sure our new home is furnished and ready to house our outreach programs for youth.
To do this, we need your support. Help us make the Weston Hub into a thriving cultural home for the performing arts and for community engagement. Your support will ensure that Shakespeare in Action can furnish our new studio-home, carry out our mission in new and exciting ways, and weave a lasting legacy in the arts and culture fabric of Toronto.
