How are we a Company?
As credited to theatre troupes in the 16th and 17th centuries in England, we call ourselves a Company. (Although, we do not have a patron!)
The young actors audition to become a member of the Company and the productions are chosen once the Company is in place. The initial weeks are spent on getting to know one another and bond as a group, working equally as one, challenging their own comfort zones. The strength of the Company then helps to dictate the production.
Susan Pendleton is a proud New Englander, growing up near Boston. She holds a Master of Arts in Educational Theatre from New York University (including studies in England) and a Master of Music from The University of Memphis. She has been teaching drama and music to students from pre-school though university since 1974, as well as creating a creative drama curriculum for the Saskatoon Schools. Susan has led over a dozen teacher workshops in various school districts in Canada. In April, 2011, Pendleton was invited as a SMART artist to lead workshops in Drama Education at The University of The United Arab Emirates.
Susan is a member of, and continues to attend, internationally recognized Educational Theatre organizations and conferences, such as TYA and AATE.
“Keen intellect and a limitless imagination are the foundations for all of the work an actor does.”
