Message from the Artistic Director
Welcome to Toronto Masque Theatre’s 2016/17 season! It has been a supreme pleasure putting together this line-up of repertoire, artists and artistic themes, and I hope that you will find it to be another rich combination of the ingredients that make TMT a unique voice on the Toronto arts scene.
I value highly the relationships that one builds as the artistic director of an arts organization: relationships with creative and performing artists, volunteers, other arts companies and, perhaps most importantly, with audience members.
All of our efforts would be pointless without you. You are interested and eager to sit in a darkened auditorium and listen and respond to the stories, ideas and feelings that we want to share with you.
I thank you for that. Thank you for buying tickets, for coming to our outreach and enrichment events and for your generous donations to our company. It is you - our loyal audience – who has encouraged and sustained us over the past twelve seasons. You have inspired us to grow, to take risks and to delve ever deeper into this endlessly fascinating and entertaining art form.
I look forward to continuing the journey with you this season.
