Special Guests

Artistic & Executive Director, Segal Centre for Performing Arts

Lisa Rubin is Artistic and Executive Director of the Segal Centre for Performing Arts. She has been fulfilling her vision of the theatre as a means to build community through the performing arts, while nurturing and inspiring the next generation of audiences. She was also proud to assist in the development of new musicals for the Canadian market and beyond, including: The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz: The Musical (featuring original music by Alan Menken), Sisters: The Belles Soeurs Musical (which has since embarked on a cross-country tour), Prom Queen: The Musical (2016), and The Hockey Sweater: A Musical (2017). A graduate of McGill University with a Bachelor of Arts in English Theatre, as well as a graduate degree in Public Relations, Lisa is also no stranger to the stage as a professional actor, performing within Canada and internationally in several award-winning productions. She has been cast in many Segal Centre performances, both with the Dora Wasserman Yiddish Theatre, and also appeared in Lies My Father Told Me and Guys and Dolls. Lisa made her professional directorial debut with the hit (sold-out) production of Bad Jews, during the Segal’s 2015-16 Season, followed by Million Dollar Quartet, one of the top successes of 2016-17, and last season she directed Marjorie Prime. She also sits on the steering committee of the Canadian Arts Summit, a unique annual forum bringing together the leaders of Canada’s top not-for-profit cultural institutions.
