Returning to Campus
Across the university, UVic is preparing to welcome students, faculty and staff back to campus. Read more <https://www.uvic.ca/return-to-campus/index.php> about these initiatives and what students can expect this fall. 

At the Department of Theatre we're thrilled to welcome all of our returning students, but we are especially looking forward to meeting our 1st and 2nd-year students in person! 

And of course, we can't wait to invite you, our audiences, safely back into our theatres. Check out our exciting new season that will be offered in-person as well as some online streaming options.

Announcing the
2021-22 Phoenix Theatre Season
As UVic returns to classes on campus this fall, the Phoenix is optimistically planning for in-person performances. While hopeful, we acknowledge we must also continue to be responsive as the pandemic evolves. Audience numbers may be limited and we are planning for various scenarios and incorporating flexibility into everything we do, including offering livestream options where possible.

Department of Theatre & Alumni updates
Department Comings & Goings
This past year has seen some momentous changes at the Department of Theatre. Several long-time faculty and staff have retired this year including our esteemed costume design professor, Mary Kerr  <https://www.uvic.ca/finearts/theatre/people/profiles/emeriti/kerr-mary.php>(top photo), applied theatre professor Warwick Dobson <https://www.uvic.ca/finearts/theatre/people/profiles/emeriti/dobson-warwick.php>, Operations and Production Manager Bert Timmermans, Head of Wardrobe Karla Stout, Scenic Carpenter Charles Procure, and Props Coordinator Bryn Finer. 

As you can imagine we have also been busy filling a lot of incredibly big shoes! To that end, we're pleased to announce some new arrivals, including Carolyn Choo <https://www.uvic.ca/finearts/theatre/people/profiles/pea/choo-carolyn.php> (middle photo) as our new Props Coordinator, Katri Tahvanainen <https://www.uvic.ca/finearts/theatre/people/profiles/pea/tahvanainen-katri.php> as Head of Wardrobe and Timothy O'Gorman <https://www.uvic.ca/finearts/theatre/people/profiles/pea/ogorman-timothy.php> will be stepping up from his role as Technical Director to become the new Operations and Production Manager. 

The Faculty of Fine Arts also welcomes Karla Point (bottom photo) as our new Indigenous Resurgence Coordinator (IRC). Karla, whose traditional Nuu chah nulth name is Hii nulth tsa kaa, feels Fine Arts is where she belongs: “The idea of sharing knowledge, learning with others and working with artistic people really appeals to me.” Read more <https://finearts.uvic.ca/research/blog/2021/07/28/learning-with-others-karla-point-is-the-new-indigenous-resurgence-coordinator-for-fine-arts/> about Karla and her new role.
