TNB Theatre School Announces Summer Programming

TNB Theatre School Announces Summer Programming

       Registration is now open for all summer programs at the TNB Theatre School.

This year’s classes will take place downtown with the exception of the Broadway Summer Series.

(Fredericton, NB) TNB Theatre School’s annual summer camps are a go for 2021! With continued
health and safety protocols in place and a few surprises in store, we’re excited to announce our
summer programs will begin in late June. Due to a series of planned renovations taking place at our
55 Whiting Road location, many of this year’s programs will take place downtown at St. Andrews
Presbyterian Church and the Charlotte Street Arts Centre.

“We are extremely grateful that we can go ahead with offering summer camps again this year,” said
TNB Theatre School Director Sharisse LeBrun. “We have to continue to work with reduced class sizes,
social distancing, masks, no live audiences and the likes, but after a full year of navigating this, we
know that quality of education and fun will remain the same!

“We’re grateful for St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church for allowing us to use their hall for our Playtime
and Junior level camps, and the Charlotte Street Arts Center for use of their auditorium for our
Intermediate/Senior programs,” she said.

The programs offered this summer include Playtime Theatre (half-day sessions for children ages 5-7),
Junior Acting (grades 3-5), Junior Musical Theatre (grades 3-5), Intermediate Senior Acting (grades 6-
8) and Intermediate Musical Theatre (grades 6-8). In addition to these summer mainstays, we are also
hosting a Musical Theatre Advanced Audition Technique Workshop led by Broadway Actor Tony
LePage and NYC Casting Director Courtney Hammond. This amazing opportunity is geared towards
pre-professionals ages 15 and up and will take place Monday evenings at the TNB Theatre School
beginning June 21.

“We are thrilled to announce a very special summer training opportunity this year,” said LeBrun.
“Fredericton-born Broadway performer Tony Lepage and NYC Casting Director Courtney Hammond
will be offering a pre-professional master class on Musical Theatre Audition Technique. Over the
course of four weeks, participants will meet weekly to work directly with Tony and Courtney using
prepared material in solo and ensemble formats. The team will coach, give direction, offer honest,
constructive feedback on material, and help participants craft their musical theatre technique at a
professional level.

“I’m so excited for students to get to learn from Tony and Courtney’s expertise – from both in front of
and behind the audition table – this summer,” said LeBrun.
A full list of programs and all health and registration information can be found by visiting
www.tnb.nb.ca

Saint John Arts Centre Launches ‘The Art Room’, New Kids’ Art Program

Saint John – Friday, April 23, 2021 – The Saint John Arts Centre (SJAC) has opened registrations in the first two of five workshops in a new art program for kids aged 9-12. Called ‘The Art Room’, the workshop series aims to promote the goals of its tagline: Artistic Pursuits / New Friends / Self-expression / Confidence.

Each workshop is 4 weeks long, with 2-hour classes per week on Saturdays. Students can register for any or all of these workshops as they are offered throughout the year. A strict class size limit of nine students will ensure social distancing, and masks will be mandatory for everyone, as per current Public Health guidelines.

The first two offerings begin on May 15th; ‘Let’s Draw’ (10am-12pm) is taught by the program’s developer, SJAC’s Education and Outreach Coordinator, Harriet Taylor, and ‘Create with Clay’ (1-3pm) is lead by professional ceramicist Danika Vautour. The other three workshops – ‘Let’s Paint’, ‘Fun with Printmaking’, and ‘Wild Art Studio’ (revolving topics), will launch later in the year.

‘The Art Room’ program provides keen young artists with an age-appropriate visual arts education that ignites creativity in a quality learning environment. Education in the visual arts fosters students’ exploration and expression of ideas while enhancing mental, emotional and motor skills, and students will benefit from forming new social connections with kids who share their interests.

“Encouraging kids in art exploration is not only fun, it can lead to a boost in self-confidence, motivation,
and overall performance in their schoolwork,” says Harriet Taylor, a veteran instructor and Academic Dean at the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design before joining the staff of SJAC in February. “As they create, they also develop friendships and community.”

CALL TO ACTION: Share the urgent need to fix fair dealing with the federal government

Over the past few months, Access Copyright has worked with a small group of authors to test out a book mailing campaign to push Prime Minister Trudeau and the federal government to reform the Copyright Act so that Canadian creators and publishers are paid for the use of their work by the education sector.

You may have seen authors such as Sylvia McNicollRobert Rotenberg and Amy Stuart on social media sharing that they mailed one of their books as well as personal letter to the PM.

Many of the authors who have taken part have received letters back from the PM’s office confirming their mailing were getting through and thanking them for sharing their work with the Prime Minister.

With that welcome news, it is now time to take this campaign to the next level.

That’s where we hope you will get involved.

It’s all part of an effort to bring to Ottawa’s attention the urgent need to address the education fair dealing exception, which has resulted in much of the education sector refusing to pay approximately $150 million in royalties for educational copying.

The federal government plans to introduce a bill later this year to update the Copyright Act to address its obligations under Canada-United States-Mexico Agreement to extend the term of copyright protection. They are also in the process of conducting a series of consultations around various aspects of copyright law which will inform additional the amendments to the Act. At this time, the government has not indicated any intention to address the harm caused by the education fair dealing exception.

This is deeply concerning as our creative sector has been dealing with the impact of this issue for almost a decade now. That’s why we are asking you to join this campaign today and share your work and your thoughts on what it means to be a Canadian creator with the PM, and why the federal government needs to take action to fix fair dealing.

Here is how you can get involved 

Mail one your books to Prime Minister Trudeau: Who better than you to share a Canadian story with the PM? Along with a book, include a personal note to him describing what trying to build a living as a professional writer looks like in Canada. How do you make ends meet? What sacrifices do you have to make? How has the loss of royalties from the education sector affected you? The mailing address is:

Right Honorable Justin Trudeau, P.C. , M.P.
Prime Minister of Canada
Office of the Prime Minister
80 Wellington Street
Ottawa, ON K1A 0A2

 

Share your mailing on social media: Before you mail out your book, please take a picture and post it to your social media platforms, with an explanation of why you are sending your book to the PM—for example, “I mailed my latest book to Prime Minster Trudeau to remind him what supporting Canadian creators really means.” It’s important that Canadians see the faces behind our stories and their rich diversity.

Here is how to make your message heard

  • Tag Prime Minister Trudeau (@JustinTrudeau), Heritage Minister Steven Guilbeault (@s_guilbeault) and Innovation, Science and Industry Minister François-Philippe Champagne (@FP_Champagne).
  • Use the hashtags #IValueCdnStories & #cdnpoli.
  • Tag our organization as well as Access Copyright (@AccessCopyright) and I Value Canadian Stories (Twitter: @valuecdnstories; Facebook: @IValueCanadianStories; Instagram: @ivaluecanadianstories).
  • Please email editor@accesscopyright.ca to let us know you have mailed a book to the Prime Minister.

Encourage others to get involved: Help build the momentum by encouraging others in your network to take part.

Amplify what others are doing: Share posts related to the campaign. Just search for #IValueCdnStories on Twitter, Instagram in Facebook and then RT, share, like and comment away!

Have questions? We’re here to help. Email Access Copyright at editor@accesscopyright.ca.
