The first winners of the Mirvish slogan contest have been announced. The Toronto theatre company invited residents to come up with inspirational messages during the pandemic.
The winning ideas are A GREAT ACT TWO DEPENDS ON YOU by Katrina Roberts and OUR STAGE IS BARE BECAUSE WE CARE by Darlene Treen.
Each winner received a $100 Mirvish Gift Card and their slogans are now up in lights on marquees at both Princess of Wales and Ed Mirvish Theatres.
Also this week, a special additional winning slogan, WEAR A MASK THAT’S ALL I ASK OF YOU, a timely re-working of a famous lyric from Phantom of the Opera. It was submitted by actors Louise Pitre and Joe Matheson, who’ve both graced Mirvish stages over the years.
New entries are now being accepted and at least two new winners will be announced on Monday April 20 and Monday April 27. To enter, visit
