Adjudicator - Bea Quarrie


Adjudicator Bea Quarrie has been involved in theatre most of her life. Her stage experience ranges from her first role learned phonetically at age eleven to two recent summers when she played a lead role in the 4th Line Theatre production For Home and Country, to directing a high school production of Paper Bag Princess in China for viewing by 42 million people. As well as being a theatre practitioner, Bea has served as an arts advocate on regional, provincial and national committees and Boards of Arts Councils, theatre companies and theatre service organizations. She is the co-founder of three professional companies in Peterborough, Ontario, where she has lived for the last 36 years.

Her education includes an Honours degree in Drama and in Fine Arts, studies in England with Peter Brook, summer courses at Theatre Ontario and an Arts Management course at Banff. She was a member of a Canadian Theatre Educators delegation to Cuba, has adjudicated Sears Festivals and community theatre drama Festivals for twenty five years, and has directed over seventy productions ranging from Rashomon to Murray Schafer's The Enchanted Forest and Wolf Shall Inherit the Moon. She retired from teaching at Lakefield College School recently and has been exhibiting her large abstract paintings with the Visual Poetry Group of Peterborough. She is currently a subject of the National Film Board's film entitled 12 currently in production.

An award-winning director whose productions have represented Canada at international festivals in Japan, Germany, Aruba, Venezuela, and Canada, Bea strongly believes in the transformative power of the arts.
