"I AM AMBITIOUS
FOR A MOTLEY COAT."
-JAQUES, AS YOU LIKE IT.
To create high-quality, accessible theatre in Canada. To develop artists and produce works that are new or have seen little exposure. To provide artists with a place to practice and hone their craft with professional compensation. To empower the new generation of artists by prioritizing employment of those aged 18-30.
Icarus Theatre was established in April 2022 with our first production Voices of Tomorrow: A Cabaret of New Music Theatre - which played to sold out audiences at the historic Buddies in Bad Times Theatre in Toronto. Our first full-length play, Lobby Hero, played at the Alumnae Theatre in December of 2022, to critical acclaim.
Anthony Goncharov is an actor, director, and (most importantly) President and Artistic Director of Icarus Theatre. He believes deeply in the craft of theatre, and hopes to build Icarus Theatre into a place where theatre artists can come to stretch their capabilities and tell beautiful stories.
He would be remiss to not issue the following thanks. He thanks to his parents for making the sacrifice of moving to a new country so that he can live the blessed life he does now. He thanks his brother for being a model for what hard work and accountability can garner a person. He thanks all the mentors, artists and friends who have helped him get here.
