Korda Artistic Productions and Cardinal Music Productions have come together in a new partnership agreement to share The KordaZone Theatre venue located at 2520 Seminole Street, and both call the theatre ‘home’.The move comes as the performing arts sector continues to navigate the devastating impacts of the ongoing COVID-19 global pandemic and presents an opportunity for the two groups to share resources and expenses while providing an exciting, innovative, stable and safe environment for local performers, crew members, and audiences to engage with the performing arts.

“Partnership is the name of the game now,” says Korda Founder Tracey Atin. “At Korda, we have always tried to find new and interesting ways to expand our family and support ourselves and others through the work we do. We’ve produced Shakespeare in a vineyard, shared production profits with community organizations supporting vulnerable populations, offered co-op placements, presented Pay-What-You-Can nights to make theatre more accessible to new audiences, supported productions by other groups, and more.”

Atin says that the hard work and commitment of board members, players, artists and audiences over the years have helped build a welcoming, quirky place where we can explore, play, and create together.

“Over the years, Joe and Cardinal Music Productions have become a large part of our story. We are excited to open the doors to welcome the Cardinal family back to The KordaZone Theatre and look forward to sharing our home as we all continue finding our way through these strange and scary times. This is about sharing space, yes, but it is also about sharing resources and risks, successes and challenges. We’ve realized how much we have in common, and as we begin to emerge from this pandemic, we look forward to entertaining our loyal audiences once again and offering them even more magic under one roof,” Atin said.

Cardinal Music Productions Owner & Founder Joe Cardinal says he is thrilled to see Cardinal and Korda join forces.

“The intimate theatre over on Seminole is magical. People come to it; people want to come to it because the shows presented on its stage are unique and beautiful and challenging and surprising. Cardinal has produced some fantastic work on the KordaZone stage, and I have been able to help my Korda friends with tech and production needs for their shows over the years. We have found inventive ways to create truly memorable productions there. Both companies have helped to raise one another’s public profiles as we’ve made strong names for ourselves. The pandemic has certainly highlighted the need to build things that are sustainable – be they spaces or ideals. Partnerships are a way to do that. More than ever, we need to be there for one another, as people and as artists. More than ever, we need to provide welcoming and safe spaces for our audiences to return to. That’s what this is about, and I’m excited to see what the future holds,” he said.
