Canadian Rep Theatre is proud to present its latest youth initiative: the FIRST ACTS playwrighting program for high school students.

Are you (or someone you know) a high school student with a passion for playwrighting? Bring your completed play, partial script, or play idea to Canadian Rep Theatre and work with Artistic Director KEN GASS, and other prominent Toronto theatre artists, to improve your play over a 10-week period. FIRST ACTS will meet every other week to workshop and discuss the plays and their progress. The program will culminate with a PUBLIC PRESENTATION of excerpts from the plays featuring PROFESSIONAL ACTORS.

INTERESTED? Send a letter of interest describing the play you want to workshop. Include a plot summary and a description of your progress on the play so far.
