2020-21 AMP Ensemble

This year’s ensemble is a diverse group of emerging theatre artists who demonstrate talent, skill and potential in their respective disciplines!

We are ecstatic to reveal our AMP 2020-21 Ensemble. Under our Artist Mentorship Program coordinators Warona Setshwaelo and Mariah Inger, this new brilliant ensemble will embark on a bold, new season of theatre. 

Over the course of the current season, they will work alongside some of Montreal’s most sought-after theatre professionals, leading up to our popular Industry Showcase in early May. We couldn’t be happier to welcome them all to the BTW family!

Join the Artist Mentorship Program and this group of exceptionally talented emerging theatre artists!
