Celebrated Speakers


Lazaridis Hall, Tom Patterson Theatre
Saturday, June 13
11:30 am

Tom Patterson’s legacy went beyond his love of theatre. An advocate for arts education, he had a transformative effect on many schoolchildren over the years. Inspired by Tom’s dedication to Shakespeare, acclaimed educator and author Lois Burdett combined her own love of the Bard with teaching in her award-winning Shakespeare Can Be Fun! series of books for kids. Lois and some of her former grade 2 and 3 students, including Jennifer Stewart, Anika Johnson, Jodi Kalbfleisch and Jenny Geoghegan share their letters, thoughts and feelings for our founder.
