Join us for our inaugural production of GROUNDED by George Brant
Artistic Director Kerry Ann Doherty and Executive Producer Thom Marriott have been professional theatre artists in Canada over the last 20 years. Recently they've chosen to expand their involvement in the theatre they love and went back to school to learn different skills. Kerry Ann received her MFA in Theatre Directing at East 15 in London, UK and Thom his Graduate Certificate in Arts Administration and Cultural Management at Humber College in Toronto. This led to the creation of Toronto's newest Theatre Company: theatreSix.
Kerry Ann has always been passionate about female driven stories and wanted to tell more. Carly Street, a Dora Award winning actor and Artistic Associate, was a also in pursuit and after many conversations brought Grounded by George Brant to Kerry Ann's attention. It's a riveting story about an ace fighter pilot whose unexpected pregnancy ends her career in the sky. Reassigned to operate military drones from a windowless trailer outside Las Vegas, she hunts terrorists by day and returns to her family each night. As the pressure to track a high-profile target mounts, the boundaries begin to blur between the desert in which she lives and the one she patrols far away. Crows Theatre Artistic Director Chris Abrahams opened the doors to the Scotiabank Community Theatre at Crowsnest Streetcar Theatre and now we need your help!
Your contributions will help build a foundation upon which theatreSix can grow, prosper and become a major force in Canada's independent theatre scene.
Our goal is to raise $10 000. This would go towards paying the artists involved. Not only our performer but our design team and stage manager. We have applied for other types of funding through grants and sponsorships to make up the rest. (Rent, rights, set, costumes, marketing, etc)
$6 for theatreSix will get you a membership to the company. You will get emails alerting you to upcoming events and exciting news.
