This program offers training for the emerging theatre artist, as both actor and creator of theatre. Training will include course related theory and research with studio training in skills for the actor and creator of theatre to be accompanied with applied practicum to bring the process oriented courses to fruition. These practicum opportunities are as follows: stage productions, touring productions, site-specific creation projects, theatre intensives with professional guest instructors, theatre related field trips and field study placements in provincial theatre centres.
When not involved in a practicum, students are taking four days of intense classes with components of: career planning, theatre history, dramaturgy/play analysis, acting, voice, movement, creation, improvisation, writing, dance, stage fighting, lifestyle and wellbeing, interdisciplinary arts, and devising theatre. The fifth day is reserved for specialty intensives, industry related events, creation sessions and one-on-one coaching with a professional theatre artist/instructor.
