Message from the CDTPS Director

Kathleen Gallagher

Dear Students, Faculty, and Staff of CDTPS,

I would like to wish everyone a nourishing, restful, and rejuvenating holiday break. 

It has been a very busy and productive term, and an extremely busy end-of-term, with class performances and showcases shared with our wider community in both our undergraduate and graduate programs, as well as the excellent work in evidence at our recent Directors’ Showcase. Students have been working very hard to complete final assignments and faculty have been working hard to provide important feedback to students in their final projects and in their learning journey. In the background, staff have been supporting the work of faculty and students in critical ways — on the stage, behind the scenes of the classroom, and through our communications. For all of these efforts, I want to say thank you.

It has been a very distressing time in our broader world, which I know continues to have enormous and deeply personal impact on so many in our community. I want to thank you all for the many expressions of understanding, care and generosity that I have seen in CDTPS. I want you to know that every act of kindness and support is deeply appreciated. 

I hope the holiday break brings you what you desire and the generosity of the season nurtures you well. 


Kathleen Gallagher
Director, Centre for Drama, Theatre and Performance Studies
