Bob Nasmith

Bob Nasmith, 1943-2019

Bob Nasmith was a part of Theatre Passe Muraille, from the very beginning at Rochdale College, and had been a staple ever since on stage and off as a performer, and TPM board member emeritus. 

Bob first signed on with Passe Muraille in the late 1960s. In subsequent years, he graduated to serve on the board of directors as a loud voice for art and artists, and as confidant to very nearly every artistic head during the theatre’s first 50 years of operation. His Passe Muraille service culminated in 2018 with his superb performance in Krapps Last Tape. He was awarded a special citation for lifetime achievement by the Toronto critics in 2018. Our Bob Nasmith Innovation Backspace Theatre is named after him for his contributions and works in TPM over the years.
