YPT’s Junior Ensemble is a comprehensive program designed for young actors in Gr. 7 and 8 who demonstrate a readiness for more advanced theatre training and wish to create and perform their own play. The program is held in YPT’s brand new classrooms at YPT 161 Studios (161 Frederick Street) – just across the street from our theatre on Front Street East.

From January to June, students will develop into a cohesive ensemble using theatre performance and collective creation skills. This program culminates in a devised play to be performed in June.

The Junior Ensemble works with a collective creation process, and is dependent upon everyone being present and actively contributing at all times. Please confirm with your parents and caregivers, before applying, that you can commit to every day of rehearsal and the final performance. Attendance at all rehearsals and the final performance is mandatory.
