A big boost for Canada’s largest theatre award.
The Siminovitch Prize in Theatre is entering into new partnerships with the University of Toronto and the RBC Foundation.
Over a three year cycle – the prize recognizes excellence in professional direction, playwriting and design for an artist who is deemed to be in mid-career.
This year’s $100,000 award will go to a director – and $25,000 of the prize money goes to a theatre protégé of the director’s choice.
Nominations are now being accepted for this year’s prize – to be awarded at the U of T’s Hart House theatre in October.
The deadline for nominations is Monday, September 16th at 5:00 p.m.
