Three Reasons

Our Season Launch Party is just around the corner and while I know you don't need a reason to party because - c'mon, who doesn't love a good party?! - I'm still going to give you 3 extra awesome reasons why you should come party with us:

1. This past year has been a big year for this little company. The Bomb-itty of Errors by Jordan Allen-Dutton, et al – a co-production with Temporary Thing – was not only nominated for 4 Jessie Richardson Theatre Awards including Outstanding Production & Outstanding Direction but went on to win for Outstanding Costume Design & Significant Artistic Achievement – Outstanding Ensemble Performance with Music & Live DJ. To be included in the same category as such phenomenal works as Electric Company's All the Way Home, Horseshoe & Handgrenades/Pacific Theatre's Re:Union, Arts Club's Craigslist Cantata and Firehall's Chelsea Hotel is a great, great honour. One that we want to celebrate with all of you.

2. As you may have heard Twenty Something Theatre has a newly appointed Associate Artistic Producer, Brian Cochrane. He is one of the co-producer's for The Bomb-itty of Errors and won his first Jessie as part of the ensemble. It is an exciting partnership and we look forward to announcing his first project with Twenty Something Theatre at the party. So, you'll need to be there to hear about it first. It's pretty darn great.

3. It's been a bit of a tough year in this city for theatre with the Vancouver Playhouse Theatre Company closing its doors. We seem to have gotten a bad reputation for our Arts & Culture going under. But what better way to show ourselves, and each other, that theatre is alive and well in this city then by getting together to celebrate our achievements in support of each other?! We have a great theatre community. Let's celebrate that.

So, after a shorter year and a 6 month hiatus, Twenty Something Theatre is back, refreshed and ready to start kicking some more theatre ass. Metaphorically. We are very excited to bring you a great 2013 season and we hope that all of you will come out to be the first to hear the announcement and help us celebrate all of our achievements: past, present & future.

On behalf of Brian, and myself, we look forward to seeing you all there!!
