Do you know someone 14-19 who is passionate about performance?

Are you looking for a FREE program to get that someone off their phone and computer this summer?

Does that young person live outside of Downtown Toronto and qualify for our BRAND NEW travel subsidy, courtesy of TD Bank?

Look no further - there are still a few available spots left in our 2016 Creative Roots Theatre Intensive Training for Young Actors.

Driftwood Theatre’s Creative Roots Theatre Training Intensive for Young Artists is a summer program providing opportunities for the next generation of artists to train in the three areas of performance particular to Driftwood’s work: Shakespeare text, vocal choral music, and movement-based theatre.

Participants are immersed in the world of professional theatre for two weeks, conducting their work alongside and under the mentorship of Driftwood artists. Participants will observe rehearsals for The Bard’s Bus Tour, take part in workshops and seminars, and prepare their own piece for public performance for an audience during Driftwood Theatre’s opening weekend of The Bard’s Bus Tour.

The Creative Roots Intensive is open FREE OF CHARGE to passionate performers, ages 14 – 19, who are hoping for a career in performance. Only applicants selected for inclusion in the program will be contacted.

NEW FOR 2016: FREE TRAVEL FOR ELIGIBLE PARTICIPANTS. In partnership with TD Bank Group, Driftwood Theatre is excited to provide Travel Bursaries to eligible applicants to cover some or all of their Creative Roots travel expenses during the two-week Intensive.
