Theatre Programs

Being an actor takes guts, talent and perseverance. Students accepted into George Brown College’s Theatre Arts program also graduate with fine-tuned classical training, real-world experience and industry connections.

See detailed program descriptions below.

George Brown’s three-year program explores a wide range of acting styles. Dance, movement, speech and voice training are also key components of the program and students receive instruction in stage combat, improvisation, commedia dell’arte, text analysis and audition technique.

Our graduates have worked with premiere Canadian theatre companies, including the Stratford Open New Browser Window and Shaw Open New Browser Window festivals and Soulpepper Theatre Company Open New Browser Window, among many others.

The advantages of George Brown’s Theatre Arts program:

  • Rewarding work. Many of our Theatre Arts graduates work with renowned companies and some have appeared on Broadway. Many also perform with independent theatre companies and produce their own work. Some graduates regularly work in film and television.
  • Study in downtown Toronto. Our facility, the Young Centre for the Performing Arts, is located in the historic Distillery District Open New Browser Window. Check out shows, soak up culture and meet other artists—it’s the place to be!
  • Small class sizes provide increased interaction with instructors and peers.
  • Field placements with Soulpepper, one of Toronto’s most celebrated theatre companies, provides the chance to forge important industry connections.
  • Perform in a professional-level theatre season. Students work with professional directors, stage managers, designers and technicians to produce a theatre season for the public in their final year.
