Theatre Production Mentorship Update

By Theatre No Comments

The Theatre Production Mentorship Program is a program developed to further the education and careers of young, backstage professionals.

This year, we have a brand new, eager group of about 20 mentees, each with their own unique skills to contribute to their designated theatre’s season of shows.

With mentees at The Watermark, King’s Playhouse, Victoria Playhouse, Anne and Gilbert, and The Guild, Creative PEI is working to organize as many educational and fun experiences as possible in collaboration with each other and within their own theatre communities

Each theatre gives their mentees guidance and responsibilities throughout their season. Some work backstage on sets, costumes, props, stage-management, lighting and sound tech, and others work on the more administrative side, shadowing General Management, taking on some of the marketing tasks, and doing front of house box office work.

This year so far we’ve scheduled a Play Reading workshop with mentee, Benton Hartley on June 24th, a theatre tour on the western side of the Island on July 5th, and multiple workshop ideas heading down the pike with The Confederation Centre of the Arts.

We are very excited about this year’s program, with Mentorship Coordinator Becca Griffin working hard to develop more experiences for everyone to take away new skills while enjoying the process. If you have any ideas for a potential Theatre Production workshop that you’d be interested in sharing with her, please feel free to send Becca a message: .
