“The National Stage Company of Canada is bringing incredible opportunities to our son, who is a young emerging artist. At this stage in his professional development, we feel that mentorship, learning, and growth within a supportive and nurturing environment are of the utmost importance, and NSCC is meeting these needs in every way. Not only is our son receiving amazing casting opportunities and top-notch direction from Managing Artistic Producer, Tony James, but he is also benefiting greatly from working alongside the other talented artists who have formed this company. We are thrilled about the wide array of upcoming specialized workshops and master classes, where company members will have the chance to soak up the knowledge and expertise of internationally renowned guest teachers in areas such as dance, theatre and voice. NSCC has created an environment that encourages, inspires, and pushes each artist to reach their full potential. It has been clear from the start that each individual artist’s talents are recognized and valued, with the goal of providing the right tools and opportunities to allow them to shine, and share their gifts on stage. Although the global pandemic has changed the pace and format of NSCC’s inaugural productions, we know the spirit and passion that is behind this company, and are excited to see it take off!”
