Your donation provides subsidized tickets and hands-on workshops, Drama School bursaries, comprehensive study guides, professional theatre productions and free community-building programs for young people across the Greater Toronto Area. In our unusual 2020.21 season, your donation will support our innovative online programming that continues to engage and inspire children and youth in our community and now is able to reach young people across the country and beyond.
- Our year-round Drama School – now online! – allows youth to build confidence and self-esteem, engage in team-building and problem-solving activities, and acquire skills for future success.
- Educational Services provide high-quality enrichment to each production through study-guides, tours, workshops and professional development for teachers, who are implementing Ontario Ministry-mandated curriculum.
- Community Volunteer programs feature internships, apprenticeships, co-op placements and general volunteer opportunities. All programs provide professional experience in the theatre industry to volunteers.
- Our Community Participation program partners with various community groups and youth in high-needs neighbourhoods, using theatre-arts to create a forum to talk about important issues, and engage in valuable peer support and mentorship. Programs include weekly sessions at Parent Resource Drop-in Centre, and drama workshops for children living with their families at City of Toronto shelters.
