A Message from Kayla Gordon and Brenda Gorlick
It’s hard to believe 10 years has gone by since WST established the professional division, and already so much has .
WST has developed a niche in the Winnipeg theatre scene by producing small intimate contemporary musical theatre productions that appeal to all ages, in particular young adults. We believe that the types of musicals we choose have an incredible amount of depth in their stories and characters and use music as a vehicle to heighten the drama and propel the story forward. Glitz, glamour, and big dance numbers are not the criteria; instead the focus shifts to the story and development of the characters.
WST strives to employ Winnipeg actors, directors, stage managers, designers, and production staff. We endeavor to be a stepping stone for young professionals breaking into the business, and to provide a training ground for emerging artists who need to gain professional experience before advancing to larger theatres such as the Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre and Prairie Theatre Exchange. We are also entering the 12th season of StudioWorks, our preprofessional young artist program. We realize this is our strength and we hope to continue to fill this need in Winnipeg’s theatre community.
We are also pleased to be part of Winnipeg Independent Theatre (WIT), a collective group of independent small theatre companies.
