First, a round of thank yous is in order . . .
Thanks to everyone who helped make 2006 a banner year for Praxis Theatre. Our production of The Master and Margarita at the Toronto Fringe Festival was the culmination of three years of workshopping, blood, sweat . . . tears, beers and Russian-adaptation fears. We’re very proud of the work and the entire team that helped make that show the success it was.
Thanks also go out to the other theatre companies, artists and producers who put on their own shows and events. Thank you to the kind folks who actually went to see and support independent theatre in 2006. And just before we all drown in thank yous, we’d also like to extend our appreciation to everyone who has contributed to this blog.
Thanks! You rock, generally.
2006 was a banner year for Praxis Theatre in many ways – new team members, more community outreach, innovative fundraising – but a lot of it had to do with positioning the company for a bright and productive future.
So, what the fuck is next?
We are excited to welcome the new year with an ever-expanding calendar of events that include our upcoming one-man show (Steel), an elegant fundraiser, our ongoing playwrights’ reading series, and much, much more.
As for this blog, we’re looking to expand and refine our offering. In 2007, we’ll be bringing you more great interviews from our 10 questions series, more from The Steel Diaries, more and better surveys, a ton of surprises as well as expanded events notices.
If you have an upcoming event that you’d like to let people know of, please drop us a line with details and we’d be happy to post it here. We’re open to pretty much any and all ideas. And if you have any thoughts on how we can make this blog a more useful service, please pass those along too.
Throughout 2006, we made some great connections. The independent theatre scene in Toronto is brimming with talent. It’s been our privilege to meet and work with some of the best. Let’s use 2007 to strengthen the networks that link us and move forward to produce the best work we can.
See you at the theatre!
The Praxis Theatre team.
