MCT’s The Golden (C)age

posted in: Productions | 0

In 2011, MCT collaborated with the Hamilton Council on Aging to create a forum production about Elder Abuse. This video shows clips from the presentation as well as testimonials from participants and partners.

Thanks to the New Horizons for Senior’s granting program this experience has led MCT to collaborate with the Toronto Council on Aging and the Ontario Network for Prevention of Elder Abuse in efforts to create a new Forum production designed to spark dialogue in the Greater Toronto community.

If you are interested in being involved we will be looking for volunteers and potential participants in the coming months. Stay wired 🙂

Mixed Company would like to acknowledge our generous partners:


Welcome to our new Forum Artists!

Today has been the start of rehearsal for our 5th year performing Mixed Messages for colleges and universities in Southern Ontario.  Mixed Messages creates dialogue about sexual assault on a college/university campus and the grey areas that exist as we navigate new relationships while under the influence of alcohol and drugs.  Having just walked out of rehearsal, I am extremely excited about the artists involved in this year’s production and I want to introduce them to you.

Ladies and Gentlemen please welcome the new team.

Michelle Jedrezejewski


Using theatre as a tool for social awareness and change is one of the things Michelle loves about this profession and this company, so she couldn’t be more thrilled to be joining the cast of Mixed Messages as Teesha.

Michelle recently played Helena in A Midsummer Night’s Dream (The Rose Theatre) and Wendy in Top Gun! The Musical (The Lower Ossington Theatre). Other select favourite theatre credits include Viola in Twelfth Night, Gwendolen in The Importance of Being Earnest, Catherine in Waiting for the Parade, the Woman in the V-Day World Premiere of The Treatment and Rachel in Voices (a production she co-created with fellow company members of Theatre After Four).  Michelle extends her sincerest thanks to the Mixed Company Theatre team for this extraordinary opportunity and her family and friends for their love and support.
