2019-2020 Artist Mentorship Ensemble!

We are thrilled to finally announce the talented artists who make up the 2019-20 Artist Mentorship Program Ensemble!

This year’s ensemble is a diverse group of emerging theatre artists who demonstrate talent, skill and potential in their respective disciplines. They include: 2 directors, 2 designers, 2 playwrights and 9 performers. Over the course of the current season, they will work alongside some of Montreal’s most sough-after theatre professionals, leading up to our popular Industry Showcase in early May. We couldn’t be happier to welcome them all to the BTW family!!
