Act1

Act1

Drama program for students of all ages and skill levels. This program builds confidence and relationships while addressing social justice, equity, bullying and other meaning topics. Our instructors teach drama theories, improv, character development, speech, creative writing, script development and stage awareness.

What to expect in our drama program

When the curtain rises, actors transform themselves and lead audiences through tales of history, love, pain and happiness – tales that come alive because of the people who perform them. Theatre performance programs at Ontario colleges and universities not only provide the acting training needed to enter the entertainment industry, but also a broad knowledge of all aspects of putting on a theatre production.

If you enjoy being in the spotlight and want to live your dream of becoming a theatre actor and performer, here’s what you need to know.
