Last spring Burnt Thicket Theatre Artistic Associate and SHE HAS A NAME Director Stephen Waldschmidt met Toronto-based actor Arthur Wachnik through their work together in the Canadian Badlands Passion Play cast. Wachnik connected Waldschmidt with Tom Carson, Director of Toronto’s The Arts Engine, who attended a SHE HAS A NAME performance when it toured to London, Ontario.
That connection has led to a Burnt Thicket Theatre presenting The Arts Engine’s production of THE BIG PICTURE by Dennis Hassell this March in Calgary and Red Deer. (click here for show details and tickets)
From their website, “The Arts Engine powers professional Christian artists and arts projects into action. They connect artists with communities to inspire, challenge and encourage the world around them through meaningful arts experiences. The Arts Engine operates as a project of IMAGO.”
