goPLAY Attends LEO at The Cultch – Presented With BIG Cheque

Touchstone’s goPLAY Youth Theatre Program took in the fantastic LEO playing in The Cultch’s Historic Theatre, as part of its worldwide tour. Prior to the performance the goPLAY program was presented with a cheque for $5000 from Howard Jang of the Telus Vancouver Community Board.

Howard Jang (Arts Club Theatre) presents Touchstone Theatre’s Artistic Director Katrina Dunn & goPLAY Youth Theatre Club Members with a cheque for $5000 in support of the program, on behalf of the Telus Vancouver Community Board.

The goPLAY Youth Theatre Club program arose from Touchstone Theatre’s desire to give Lower Mainland secondary school students — with a passionate interest in theatre — exposure to the amazing range of local and touring theatre in Vancouver. The concept is to offer students the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of the art form, thereby promoting theatre literacy and nurturing the creators and engaged patrons of the future.

Touchstone Theatre’s goPLAY program is still looking for youth applicants interested in fueling their passion for theatre and the arts and attending local theatrical productions for FREE! goPLAY is free to join for Lower Mainland secondary students and allows students to take in up to 15 free shows during the school year as well as giving them the opportunity to meet some some of Vancouver’s most happening professional theatre artists.
