Assistant Director Needed
Apply to assist in the creation of our production of Much Ado About Nothing
Much Ado About Nothing Hart House Theatre is currently looking for a registered U of T student for the volunteer position of Assistant Director for our November production of Much Ado About Nothing, directed by Carly Chamberlain.

While directing experience is not necessary, an interest in direction is crucial and a love of Shakespeare would definitely be an asset! The job is a volunteer position that works directly with the Director to bring together all aspects of the production into a cohesive product; to ensure the artistic vision, concepts and interpretations are clear and satisfying for the audience. Other specific tasks will be delegated by the Director. 

Interested applicants can forward a resume/CV and statement of interest to the Interim Education and Production Coordinator, Rebecca Ostroff at rebecca.ostroff@utoronto.ca

NOTE: this opportunity is restricted to currently registered students of U of T.

We are looking to staff this position in the next few weeks, so don't delay!
SummerWorks Starting
This curated Performance Festival begins August 4
Founded in 1991, SummerWorks is Canada's largest curated performance festival of theatre, dance, music and live art. The Festival is widely recognized as one of the most vital platforms for launching new Canadian work - locally, nationally and internationally. While we are excited to see the breadth of work this year, we cannot help but play favourites when there's a show directed by one of the directors in our very own season!

Produced by Newborn Theatre
Written by Rachel Ganz
Directed by Carly Chamberlain (Psst! It's our director of MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING!!)

From the producers: "Infusing comedy, bluegrass music, and a complete lack of sentimentality, Plucked is set in a world where fear turns women into chickens, eggs are high currency, and vaginas are near-dangerous possessions. Plucked skewers patriarchy without holding punches. It exposes hard truths about fear and family. It's funny because it's fake; it's vulnerable, but it's okay because it ends with a curtain call, but it's not okay because it's familiar. Plucked is, after all, a true story. It's just full of lies."

When: Various show times August 5-14, 2016
Where: The Theatre Centre Mainspace, 1115 Queen Street West
Cost: $15

Elsewhere in the House

Hart House is the host and creator of many events and opportunities. Here's a look at one that's on this week.

Art MuseumThe Art Museum is proud to present Counterpoints, a major exhibition that reveals the remarkable breadth and depth of interest in photography in this city. The exhibition has evolved through the generosity of passionately committed collectors who granted the loan of their works, allowing them to be seen by the public - many for the first time in Toronto. Highlighting a broad spectrum of private collections, Counterpoints proposes an experience of looking at photography that is ultimately heterogeneous and non-linear. Spanning nearly two centuries, the exhibition comprises 19th century singular images captured on metal and glass plates, through to artists' works that acknowledge photography's endlessly reproducible, ubiquitous presence in a vast and ephemeral digital world.

When: Ongoing until July 30, 2016
Where: Justina M. Barnicke Gallery and U of T Art Centre
Cost: Free
