Safe Schools: The Threat From Within?, Donn Short 2010 University of Manitoba Faculty of Law

Safe Schools: The Threat From Within?, Donn Short

Donn Short

Safe school policies in many urban schools in Ontario have featured security guards, electronic surveillance, student identification tags, discipline, and zero tolerance. In 2000, the Ontario Ministry of Education passed the Safe Schools Act, which set out a list of offences that could trigger expulsion, suspension, and other disciplinary responses. Interestingly, it did not define safety. In a parallel move, the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) adopted The Equity Foundation Statement in 1999 – a comprehensive commitment to equity and a rally against racism, homophobia, sexism, and oppression based on class. This article explores the disconnect between students’ and teachers’ conceptualization ...

Happy End, December 2 – 11, 2010, Theatre Sheridan

Theatre Sheridan Productions

Set against the backdrop of the greed of American capitalism, personified by tycoons like John D. Rockefeller, Henry Ford and J.P. Morgan, a gang of entrepreneurial Chicago gangsters, led by top tough guy Bill Cracker, hangs out in Bill’s Beer Hall, and plots to control the local territory. But when a Salvation Army band, led by Sister Lillian Holiday, tries to convert the gang, things don’t quite work out as planned. Surprise revelations, contentious moralistic conclusions, and one of the most celebrated scores by Kurt Weill and Bertholt Brecht, make this frothy satire one of the great ...

Application Of Leadership Principles In Theatrical Direction, Rebecca L. Rizzio 2010 St. Catherine University

Application Of Leadership Principles In Theatrical Direction, Rebecca L. Rizzio

Master of Arts in Organizational Leadership Theses

This research explores the relationship between leadership principles widely believed to be effective and the behaviors demonstrated in art of theatrical direction by directors believed to be effective. The Appreciative Inquiry (AI) approach was used to survey actors, designers, and stage managers. Directors from the Twin Cities theater community that the respondents deemed to be most effective were then interviewed. Parallels were drawn between the qualities cited in the surveys and the leadership behaviors theorists believe to be most effective. Findings will be shared with the theater community.


Recasting Genre In Tennessee Williams's Apprentice Plays, Christina Ilona Hunter 2010 University of Southern Mississippi

Recasting Genre In Tennessee Williams's Apprentice Plays, Christina Ilona Hunter

Dissertations

This dissertation investigates Tennessee Williams’s earliest full-length plays, also known as the apprentice plays—Candles to the Sun, Fugitive Kind, Not About Nightingales, Spring Storm, and Stairs to the Roof—by comparing, contrasting and contextualizing them in relation to Daniel Chandler’s generic criteria of drama; namely, narrative, characterization, setting, topics, iconography, and staging techniques. The present study also draws upon an extensive body of scholarship pertaining to genre theory, Williams’s cultural contemporaries, and the historical and psychological backdrop of Depression-era America. In these early plays, Williams diverged sharply from the dramatic generic conventions of his day, manipulating ...

'Moonlight And Magnolias', Gordon Reinhart

Gordon Reinhart

1939 Hollywood is abuzz. Legendary producer David O. Selznick has shut down production of his new epic, Gone with the Wind, a film adaptation of Margaret Mitchell’s novel. The screenplay, you see, just doesn’t work.While fending off the film’s stars and gossip columnists, Selznick sends a car for famed screenwriter Ben Hecht and pulls director Victor Fleming from the set of The Wizard of Oz. Summoning both to his office, he locks the doors and the three men labor over five days to fashion a screenplay that will become the blueprint for one of the most ...


The Drowsy Chaperone, November 30 – December 11, 2010, Theatre Sheridan 2010 Sheridan College

The Drowsy Chaperone, November 30 – December 11, 2010, Theatre Sheridan

Theatre Sheridan Productions

The mousy, agoraphobic, Broadway fanatic ‘Man in Chair’ seeks to cure his “non-specific sadness” by listening to a recording of a (fictional) 1928 musical comedy entitled The Drowsy Chaperone. As he enjoys this rare recording, he is transported into the musical, his dingy apartment transformed into a Broadway set. Frenetic tap dancing, hysterical situational comedy, mistaken identities, and the inevitable happy ending all make for an unforgettable evening in the theatre. Music & lyrics by Lisa Lambert & Greg Morrison. Book by Bob Martin & Don McKellar

Director: Geoffrey Tyler

Choreographer: Linda Garneau

Musical Director: David Myers
