Youth Theatre

TNL Sara…H McDonald 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.

Youth Theatre Classes

With classes for students from Grade One, right up to Grade twelve, there is something for everyone at the Sara…H McDonald Youth Theatre. Our classes teach acting skills such as imagination, memory, text analysis, improv, and much more. All classes are taught in a fun game and activity based style, with students often working together in order to complete a game or task. Students learn about acting in our youngest classes (how to get into character, learn lines, etc) and in our older classes, students take their first steps into new play Development (Collective Playmaking, Directing, Design). One thing is for certain, every year is filled with new fun and challenges as our students find “the art in them”.  Classes will start the week of February 14, 2022.
