Theatre Standing Committee

Back to the Get Involved Page


The Hart House Theatre Standing Committee acts as an Advisory Board for Theatre Management while ensuring that the Theatre’s Programming and Operations are in line with the Theatre’s Mission Statement and Hart House’s Vision Statement. The scope of its discussions and recommendations include but are not limited to the following areas: Theatre Development and Advancement, Theatre Operating Policies and Procedures, Accountability and fiscal prudence, Theatre Branding and Marketing, Student Involvement, Programming, and Audience Development. The Committee recognizes its responsibility to strengthen Hart House Theatre’s position as a Cultural Destination for the University and the City of Toronto while creating an inclusive environment where all feel welcome as per the House’s Vision Statement.

Student members of the Theatre Committee rub shoulders with alumni and Industry professional members – echoing the unique mix found at Hart house Theatre. Primarily an Advisory Board for the Theatre’s Management, the committee brainstorms regarding high-level decisions and offers valuable feedback to staff. Not only discussing operational and programming elements, the student members must be engaged in the Theatre through other means: technical, administration/marketing, creative etc…
