Allyson at George Brown

Artistic Director Allyson McMackon is thrilled to be directing the third year class at George Brown Theatre School in Anna Karenina. The wonderful adaptation of Tolstoy’s classic by Helen Edmundson was first produced with Shared Experience in the UK. It’s going to be a winter of chilly Russian snows, trains, fields, women, men, love and loss. Please visit George Brown Theatre School for more information

Western Skies

Artistic Director Allyson McMackon had the very good fortune to spend part of July and most of
August teaching at The Globe Theatre Conservatory. This was her second time at the conservatory, and this season had the good fortune to be working alongside voice teacher Laurel Thomson and acting teacher David Latham on The Winter’s Tale. For five weeks, ten brave ones dove into the world of image, voice, body and Shakespeare. A privilege to work with such artists all around.
