Marchand has since taken on an even bigger role as the managing director of the National Arts Centre Indigenous Theatre in Ottawa — the first Indigenous theatre department in the world.

Another artist talk will take place on June 25, when MacDonald will talk to WCT regular Kirk Smith. The Kamloops-raised actor has appeared in a number of WCT productions, including as The Cat in the Hat in Seussical and Buddy the Elf in Elf The Musical.

That talk will take place at 7:30 p.m.
