Ontario NTS Festival

Keith Barker, Artistic Director Native Earth Performing Arts

''I grew up in Northwestern Ontario. Hockey was the standard, and high school football was the measure of a man. The Arts was relegated to a classroom with no discernible real life application. All that changed when I went to the Sears Drama Festival. I went from thinking I would be a transport driver my whole life to discovering I wanted to be an actor. It was the beginning of my education in the arts, one that continues to this day. I owe my professional arts career to the Sears Drama Festival and my first drama teacher, Gail Sajo.''

Keith Barker will be the 2019 Provincial Showcase Adjudicator
