Theatre of the Beat's Emerging Producers Festival

Event Date: 
Thursday, August 22, 2024 to Saturday, August 24, 2024

Theatre of the Beat is hosting an arts festival! The festival will include new stage plays in development, a pop up art gallery, food vendors, artisan vendors, live music, and more!


The Emerging Producers Festival is an initiative that unfolds in two phases.


First, a 10-week residency program will provide hands-on training for four emerging producers. During the residency program, emerging producers will gain practical experience in curation, production, and community engagement from an established theatre company. Emerging producers will witness how a theatre company creates and produces work, and be paired with experienced mentors to learn the intricacies of arts administration.


In the second phase (festival phase), emerging producers will gain invaluable experience in every aspect of production. The producers will curate and produce a multidisciplinary theatre festival, presenting original works on themes of social justice and community impact. They will collaborate to plan and implement the festival, while also working independently to produce their own work.  Productions will include staged readings, works in progress, and fully realized one-act shows that showcase the creativity of new voices in Canadian theatre.


Location: Danforth Mennonite Church, Toronto
