Kate Newby Named Artistic Producer of Calgary’s Urban Curvz Theatre
Urban Curvz Theatre (UCT) is pleased to announce that multiple-award winning director Kate Newby will be its next Artistic Producer, marking the start of a new and exciting chapter for the Calgary-based theatre company.
"The Board of Urban Curvz is thrilled beyond measure to declare welcome Kate Newby as the next Artistic Producer of Urban Curvz. We know her inspired vision, collaborative spirit, and standard of excellence are the precise combination of abilities required to lead the Urban Curvz into its next momentous stage," says Christine Clements, Chair.
Kate has been actively engaged in Calgary's theatre community since 1991 when she moved from Edmonton after completing her BFA acting degree at the University of Alberta in 1985.
"Calgary is a city I love for its artistic excellence and creative potential. There are so many exceptional performing arts organizations in this city but few fill such a unique niche in our community as Urban Curvz Theatre. As the only Calgary theatre company devoted to the female perspective, I'm excited to begin this new phase as UCT's Artistic Producer and to lead a company that honours female-identified artists and strong female narratives on a path that is inclusive to all. I'm also thrilled at the prospect of collaborating with Calgary's many artists, arts organizations, and community leaders to unfold the diverse landscape of female experience found in the greater the Calgary community," says Newby.
