The Bus Stop Theatre Playwrights Unit

The Playwrights Unit has been fostering creation within the abundance of new and diverse storytellers our city has to offer since the fall 2016. The Unit hosts two short play night events a year and meets once a month to workshop each others’ scripts. The Playwrights Unit can act as a producer to scripts that have been developed through the Unit, applying for and navigating grants and the processes that take a script from workshop to production. The Unit is coordinated by Meghan Hubley and Rebecca Falvey. Meetings are open to anyone who would like to hear their work outloud, so please get in touch at bstplaywrights@gmail.com

StART offers workshops, mixers and other industry events throughout the year as well as the annual StART Fest which showcases a wide range of talent across artistic disciplines.

Trade School

The Bus Stop Theatre Co-op annually offers workshops and educational opportunities intended to broaden the skills of our membership and the general public. These include our in-house Black Box Basics workshops through which participants learn the basic skills necessary to understand and operate the technical equipment at the Bus Stop Theatre. We also offer a number of workshops in collaboration with other organizations with a similar mandate. Stay tuned for upcoming workshops beginning in the summer of 2020.

 

Reparations Fund & Sign Language Fund

The Bus Stop Theatre Co-op is setting up two separate funds to make the rental of our theatre more accessible to Indigenous peoples and to people of African descent, and also to help support the hiring of sign language interpreters during events hosted at the Bus Stop. Stay tuned for coming announcements.
