 ACT-CO SEEKS WEBMASTER 
 

URGENT MESSAGE TO MEMBERS OF ACT-CO GROUPS


ARE YOU WILLING TO TAKE ON THE WEBMASTER PORTFOLIO ON THE ACT-CO BOARD OF DIRECTORS?

The ACT-CO website is about ninety percent database-driven (PHP/MySQL) and is developed pretty well as far as it needs to go; however, a good knowlege of HTML, CSS, and PHP/MySQL (and a limited knowledge of Javascript) would be an asset to maintain the site, put out fires, and to develop the site further as the needs arise. Because Adobe Dreamweaver CS4 has been used exclusively as the page editor, there are quite a few features that use Dreamweaver tricks and code styles, so this may present a problem for anyone not familiar with Dreamweaver. And, of course, many tricks and styles are my own would need some "'splain'n". To whatever extent required, I am prepared to co-webmaster with you for as long as it takes. If being the ACT-CO Webmaster sounds like a plan for you, please contact me at any time by email at actcowebmaster@actco.ca, or by phone at 905-643-9687, to discuss.  Or, contact the ACT-CO President at actcopresident@actco.ca.

 THEATRE ONTARIO FESTIVAL 
 


Theatre Ontario Welcomes Ron Cameron-Lewis as Festival 2015 AdjudicatorTheatre Ontario is thrilled to welcome Ron Cameron-Lewis as adjudicator for the 2015 Theatre Ontario Festival in Oshawa.  The Festival will be Ron’s penultimate appearance as an adjudicator in Ontario, leading to his “swan song” appearance as adjudicator of the 2016 Western Ontario Drama League Festival (although he will continue with some international theatre work.)

”I am honored to be invited to adjudicate the Theatre Ontario Festival in Oshawa,” said Ron Cameron-Lewis.  “This marks the fifth time in the past 29 years that I have been asked to adjudicate the top productions from around the province. Having attended many more Theatre Ontario Festivals as well, I look forward to reconnecting with many friends from all aspects of my half century of experience in community theatre.”

Ron is well known to community groups across the province as a teacher, adjudicator and workshop leader.  He has adjudicated well over 2,000 productions throughout Ontario for community and educational theatre festivals, as well as in the USA at state, regional, national and international levels. Since 2010, he has taught the art of adjudication to 50 people, three times at Theatre Ontario Festivals and twice at AACT national festivals in Rochester, New York, and Carmel, Indiana.  In 2010, Sheridan Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning appointed him Professor Emeritus, and in 2013, Ron was elected as Member-at-Large for the American Association of Community Theatres for a three-year term.

Theatre Ontario Festival 2015 will be held in Oshawa from May 13 to 17, 2015 and is co-hosted by Theatre Ontario, Oshawa Little Theatre, and the Association of Community Theatres—Central Ontario.

 The Joy of Sets 
 

The Joy of Sets - Handbook of Set Design for Community Theatre
THEA award-winning set designer, Jane Coryell, teaches how to think and create as a set-designer, read a script from the set designer’s viewpoint, think about a visual metaphor in the set, consider different styles of sets, prepare preliminary sketches, make floor plans, consider sightlines, do final drawings, make stage models to scale, assemble colour swatches for set dressers and costumers, make construction diagrams for set builders, and make cross-section diagrams for lighting designers. This handbook suggests an easy, inexpensive technique for making model furniture to scale. It recommends useful set designing tools and resources. It also includes many snapshots of Jane’s set designs on stage and in models. Visit Smashwords or Amazon UK to buy, or write to Jane at jane.coryell@sympatico.ca for more information about this handbook.
