TNB host weekend workshop with veteran voice coach Cathy MacKinnon.
Theatre New Brunswick is proud to announce its upcoming Shakespeare and Voice Intensive Workshop, with guest instructor Cathy MacKinnon. This will be the company’s third workshop of its 2015-2016 season. The workshop will take place November 7-8, 2015 at the TNB Studio Theatre, 55 Whiting Road.
“What a great privilege it is for us to be able to bring Cathy to Atlantic Canada,” said TNB Artistic Director, Thomas Morgan Jones. “As a voice and Shakespeare coach for almost a decade at one of Canada’s leading classical theatres, The Stratford Festival, her impact on performance in Canada has been astonishing. She is a hugely gifted teacher, and we are so excited to bring her knowledge and her energy to Atlantic Canada.”
TNB’s return to a full slate of professional training workshops this year has proven very popular so far, attracting actors from Ontario, Nova Scotia and throughout the province to train with the company.
“As artists, we often have to travel to find the right teacher,” said Jones. “By bringing Cathy to the province, our hope is that artists here in Atlantic Canada can have access to the same training they would receive in Stratford, only they can engage with this training here at home. I’ll be in the hall for the weekend of training, too, learning with the participants, and simply cannot wait for this brilliant artistic exchange and opportunity for us all to grow.”
The upcoming Shakespeare and Voice Intensive Workshop will be limited to 24 students. Interested actors are asked to register on or before October 30 to reserve a spot for this exciting training opportunity.
