Dominique Boulianne, who assumed the role of Artistic Director and General Manager of Theatre Lac Brome last September, replacing Nicholas Pynes, who held the job for 28 years, resigned from the position last week. In his absence, the board of directors is left to account for a season of events that includes very little theatre despite the venue having a specific mandate for English-language productions. According to Theatre Lac Brome President Hélène Jalbert, “English theatre is here to stay.” It appears, however, that it will sit on the back burner for the moment while the theatre fills its coffers from music concerts and French language events. “We’re in a transition, things don’t happen overnight,” commented board member Jessica Brown. “I think it’s going to take a little longer than everyone thought. We need time, we’re developing,” Brown said, defending the diversified programming. “Bills have to be paid,” added Brigitte Boutin, also on the board of directors. “It’s a challenge to find the right balance.” “The board is unanimous, we want English theatre here,” Jalbert said.
