Musical Category – Carolee Mason

Carolee is an award winning drama educator, author and director, and an experienced adjudicator with the EODL, ACT-CO, WODL and Sears Drama Festivals. Her work in music and theatre has taken her from the stage of the Canadian Opera Company to theaters throughout Ontario. She has directed and designed dozens of productions, many of them musicals. Working with community groups, children and teens, Carolee brings her own background as a musician and performer to productions. Her theatre training included study with the U of T Opera School, University College Drama Program, and Queen’s University.  As a stage manager reading orchestral scores for opera and musical theatre, she has drawn on her experience as a symphony musician. As a choreographer, she has been influenced by her early dance and musical training.  Carolee has collaborated over many years with conductors and composers to create original productions for young audiences; over two decades, her annual musical productions in Eastern Ontario introduced three thousand local elementary school children to the delights of live theatre every holiday season. An instructor and director of both secondary and post-secondary students, she has taught students most recently at the University of Toronto, and at Brock University. Outside of the classroom setting, Carolee’s audition preparation and coaching courses have helped many of her pupils gain admission to prestigious performing arts programs including those at Sheridan, George Brown, York University and the National Theatre School. Graduates have gone on to make worthy contributions to the arts across the country.  Carolee is presently working on the Steering Committee for the Symposium Play!, part of the World Festival of Children’s Theatre, at Stratford, Ontario in June 2016.
