Profile Highlight | Suitcase Theatre (Toronto)
As ArtBridges’ Community-Engaged Arts Directory grows, we realize that it’s a bit overwhelming to read through all of the profiles. We’re hoping that by occasionally highlighting some profiles on our blog, you may learn about an initiative that you may not have initially seen in the directory. Also, if you know of a Canadian community-engaged arts for social change initiative that isn’t in our directory, but should be, please let us know! We love and need your input/feedback in building this resource! -Lisa, Content Coordinator at ArtBridges.
“Suitcase Theatre is a registered charitable organization that was founded by the original producer and creator of Mr. Dressup, one of Canada’s most loved and longest running children’s television shows. The theatre group performs at daycares, schools, hospitals, community centres, festivals and special events across Ontario. We also offer dynamic after school programs, camps and class workshops that focus on drama, improv, comedy, singing, dancing and the visual arts.
Our goal is simple: we encourage everyone to discover their creativity and love of live theatre regardless of income or circumstance.”
