GLOBUS THEATRE WELCOMES NEW GM
Globus Theatre is thrilled to welcome Monique Renaud as the company’s first ever General Manager. Monique is a graduate of the University of Windsor’s Drama in Education and Community Program as well as the BFA Acting Program. She was previously the Public Relations Manager at Playwrights Guild of Canada and before that worked as a producer for independent theatres in Toronto. Monique volunteers with the Canadian Arts Coalition as the Co-Chair of the Communications Committee where she advocates for an increase in support for the arts and culture sector on a Federal level.
“I have been a fan of Globus Theatre since my family purchased a cottage in the Kawartha Lakes five years ago,” she says. “The connection that the theatre has with its audience is extraordinary and the vision that Sarah and James have to make professional theatre a part of the Bobcaygeon experience is truly inspiring. I am overjoyed with this new opportunity to work with Globus Theatre and become a part of the Kawartha community.”
Monique’s role as General Manager began on March 4th and she is jumping right into the preparation for the upcoming All-Canadian summer season. After eight years in the Toronto theatre scene as producer, arts administrator, and arts and culture advocate, Monique lands in our very own Bobcaygeon to join forces with Sarah Quick, Artistic Director and James Barrett, Artistic Producer.
“We are delighted to have Monique join our team here at Globus,” says Sarah Quick, Artistic Director at Globus. “The growth that the company has seen over the last few years has been phenomenal and we want to harness that growth and build upon it. Having someone with Monique’s marketing and Arts expertise will help us do just that as we embrace our move to charitable status and capitalize on the influx of new and returning patrons. Her friendly and warm personality, as well as her passion for the Arts and her willingness to get the job done, encapsulates everything we strive to be at Globus.”
