Western Canada’s largest theatre company, the Arts Club announced last week at its 2013/2014 season launch party an extensive corporate sponsorship by BMO Financial Group. The commitment ensures that the Arts Club’s rich history is celebrated during its milestone season, and also provides a lasting legacy and solid platform for future endeavours.
“On behalf of the company, I am delighted to commend BMO for this important investment,” said Bill Millerd, artistic managing director. “The generous contribution greatly assists us in achieving our vision, both in terms of productions and special community initiatives to mark our 50th season.”
As the Season 50 Partner, BMO will fund special community engagement activities to pay tribute to the landmark year. Their commitment also includes sponsorship of the world premiere of Helen Lawrence, a highlight of the season. The ambitious and highly innovative show is the collaborative effort of three acclaimed Canadian artists: visual artist Stan Douglas, screenwriter Chriss Haddock, and director Kim Collier. It is produced in association with the Canadian Stage Company and the Banff Centre.
BMO Financial Group has been an annual production sponsor for many years and a corporate donor of Arts Club Theatre Company, and has supported theatre in many regions of the country.
Arts Club Theatre Company offers professional theatre at three venues—the Stanley Industrial Alliance Stage, Granville Island Stage, and Revue Stage—as well as on tour throughout the province. Click here for more information on the 2013/2014 season.
