New Blood

Back in June, before I went on my 3-month break from all things work related, I hinted at an exciting announcement about a welcome addition to the artistic management team of Twenty Something Theatre.

For the past 7 seasons I have largely been running the company on my own - which has been fine - however in order for the organization to continue to grow and expand the time has come to bring some new blood to the company. So, without further ado, I would like to introduce you to the new Associate Artistic Producer of Twenty Something Theatre:

Brian Cochrane is very pleased to be joining Twenty Something Theatre as Associate Artistic Producer.

Recently Brian was a lyricist and performer in Delinquent Theatre's Stationary (2012 Neanderthal Arts Festival), assistant director on King John (Bard on the Beach), and producer and performer in The Bomb-itty of Errors (Twenty Something/Temporary Thing). Other credits include directing Home Free! (Staircase XI), East of Berlin (Know Tomorrow Theatre, Saskatoon), and the Canadian Premiere of Love/Stories (Kinetichism). In the November 2012 he will be directing The December Man (Fire In The Hole, Saskatoon).

Brian holds a BFA in Acting from the University of Saskatchewan and an MFA in Directing from the University of British Columbia. He holds them every night.

Many of you will know Brian from Twenty Something Theatre's co-production with Temporary Thing of the The Bomb-itty of Errors this past April.

The company is fortunate to have Brian on board and I am very much looking forward to working with him. He will direct his first production for Twenty Something Theatre in our 2013 season which we look forward to announcing to you in November at our 2013 Season Launch Party (or, as I like to refer to it, Just A Reason to Party, Party). Details for that to come soon, I promise.
