Theatre Ontario's Summer Theatre Intensive

Theatre Ontario's Summer Theatre Intensive

AUGUST 4 TO 9, 2019
Exploring and Learning Together!

This year we head to the East side of our province to beautiful Kingston Ontario! Our courses will be held at historic Queen’s University and will include a week of incredible training opportunities for you to explore something new or boost your skills. We have the opportunity to keep all courses, the accommodations and all meals on the premises and we are taking full advantage of the wonderful, modern facilities Queen’s has to offer.

"I have learned things both tangible and intangible that I know will influence my future work in a positive way. I benefitted from being able to hear feedback ... and so too the chance to discuss and react to what my colleagues are working on. It's a rare privilege and I'm very grateful for the experience." - 2018 Summer Theatre Participant

Fundamentals of Acting, with Rosanna Saracino
