What began as Brenda Gorlick’s YoungStars 20 years ago evolved quickly into StudioWorks Academy- the training wing of Winnipeg StudioTheatre. As the originator and director of the program, I am proud of the legacy that the program has achieved. It has been a driving force in the development of young (and older) talent, both onstage and behind the scenes, a strong community participant in local and international events and a rich template for other successful programs. Through the commitment of so many artistic associates, students, parents, volunteers, board members and creative team members, I have always marvelled at the quality and calibre of our productions, performances and special events. Thank-you to our alumni and to YOU, our many supporters who have shared the past twenty years with us. Onward and upward!
