Toronto Youth Theatre is seeking talented young people aged 15 -22 who wish to develop their acting skills in a professional environment to join their 2018 summer programme directed by Irish director Alan Kinsella.

“I’m very excited to be working with Toronto Youth Theatre on its upcoming productions of #YOLO by Matthew Bulgo and FOMO by Suhayla El-Bushra. These are sharp and provocative plays, which place the lives of teenagers’ center stage. Direct and honest, the plays explore the pressures and prospects facing young people on the verge of adulthood. These exciting and relevant pieces are the perfect base to hone and develop young actors’ talents”
