KC: Our Mascot
d² productions is proud to have launched Backstage Borders Mentorship Program. Our mandate is to give back to the community in some way; we feel the Backstage Borders Mentorship Program is a valuable step in that direction. We are committed to sharing our experience with theatre lovers. For more information go to our Backstage Borders Mentorship Program page.
We also believe that as artists we have a responsibility to support other artists. With that in mind Associate Producer Max Mehran has created a facebook forum YUL Theatre Board powered by d² productions. A place where theatre lovers and artists can get up-to-date information on what’s happening in the Montreal theatre scene.
