Drama School


It’s our 50th Birthday
– and we’re celebrating all year long!

YPT’s Drama School is the oldest and largest of its kind in Canada. It’s a place for young people to explore their interest in theatre, mentored by professional and experienced artists. We offer year-round programming celebrating everyone’s unique abilities. Kids and youth discover the power of their own voice, gain confidence, make new friends – and have FUN! We’re 50 – and we’ve never felt so young! Join us for a year filled with celebration and stay tuned for more information on alumni events and anniversary activities. In the meantime, we invite you to submit your memories of YPT Drama School here.
