It is so incredible to be welcoming students back – in-person – to our Drama School at YPT! Saturday classes for JK-Gr. 12 take place in brand new classrooms at YPT 161 Studios (161 Frederick Street) – just across the street from our theatre on Front Street East. In these fresh new spaces for play-making, children and youth will investigate the world around them in fun and creative ways, and tell the stories that matter to them. New students are welcome throughout the year; however each term builds upon the last. Enrolling in all three provides the most comprehensive learning experience. See class details and registration links for Spring term below. 

Please Note:
