The next act of the School of Dramatic Art promises exciting opportunities for students, says its new director, David Court (BA 1996).
“Our drama school and University Players have a 65-year history that has given so many professionals in the Canadian theatre industry their foundation,” Court says. “It continues to be the place where we can achieve excellence through collaboration with students, professional staff and faculty, and talented guest artists.”
A graduate of the school himself, Court has served on its faculty as well as a scenic designer and artist. He began a five-year term as its director July 1.
“I’m looking forward to connecting with students, staff, faculty, and of course our supporters, patrons, and the general community in this new role,” he says. “The success of SODA is all of us, working together.”
