About the Drama School

We are the largest theatre school in Canada providing drama classes for toddlers to teens in two different locations. Classes take place at YPT’s brand new education centre, YPT 161 Studios, as well as Etobicoke’s Assembly Hall.

YPT’s Drama School is a place for young people to explore their interest in theatre, mentored by professional and experienced artists. We offer year-round programming celebrating all abilities and levels. Kids and youth discover the power of their own voice, gain confidence, self-esteem, self-awareness and make new friends and have fun! From weekly classes to full-day camps, the school – now in its 55th year – embodies our theatre’s vision: to have a positive impact on the emotional, social and intellectual development of young people.
