|Centennial College’s Theatre Arts and Performance program is your open door to a groundbreaking professional career in theatre. You'll develop your technical skills, nurture your artistic voice and make crucial industry connections.
Classes in acting, movement and voice will expand your artistic range across different styles of classic and contemporary performance, including live and on-camera. You'll also build your audition skills, learn how to get an agent and create your own dynamic demo reel. Through independent “storefront” productions, meanwhile, you’ll gain experience as an actor-entrepreneur, pushing your creative boundaries to the front-line of theatre innovation and gaining the tools to succeed in Canada’s vibrant theatre scene. When you graduate, you’ll be ready to run your own theatre company or develop your career as a professional actor, director, stage manager, producer or instructor, in Canada and on the world stage.
