Youth Theatre

Since 1979, Theatre Newfoundland Labrador’s Youth Theatre Program has created diverse, well-rounded training and performance opportunities for young people to grow as both artists and human beings. Our program seeks to strengthen essential life skills, such as focus, confidence, and communication, through the exploration of various theatre disciplines, such as acting, stagecraft, and dramatic writing. Our community-engaged, professional, and nurturing environment emphasizes the importance of team work and collaboration while still focusing on the individual to hone his or her unique gifts and greatest potential.
