Junior Ensemble

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. Over two terms, 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. As we are unable to know the exact circumstances of our ability to perform in-person come the Spring, we will be determining at a later date how we will negotiate the final performance. Learn more.
