STUDENTS ON STAGE2018-12-05T15:06:14+00:00

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.
