While the summer outdoor plays have been put on hold this year, Project X is still working on productions.

It has launched a new play development program called New Shoots. Plays developed through this process will have some public readings and just might end up on the summer stage in the future. Information is online at https://www.projectxtheatre.ca/newshoots.htm.

In addition, Project X will be opening up some mentorship opportunities for emerging artists. If you or someone you know is looking for some tips in design, QLab, puppetry, directing, playwriting and more, send an email to randi@projectxtheatre.ca.
