Discover. Develop. Play. Perform.

Theatre isn’t all about being the centre of attention. It builds confidence and self-esteem, challenges an individual’s comfort level and breaks down social barriers.The STC Academy introduces participants of all ages and experience levels to the magic of theatre in a supportive, social, and non-threatening environment. Our classes are led by skilled and highly-trained instructors with extensive teaching backgrounds. Students are exposed to a wide range of games, exercises, and experiences that are tailored to any skill level. All classes end with a presentation for family and friends.

This unique program engages students in the process of creating a major theatrical production, culminating in a series of performances for parents and the community. Participants develop their performance abilities in acting, voice and movement, and contribute to the creation of props, sets, and costumes.

For ages 10 to 17
