The Theatre Arts – Performance program at George Brown’s School of Media and Performing Arts offers vigorously concentrated, career-oriented training in the fundamental skills, practicalities, traditions and professionalism needed to work as a professional actor in theatre, television and film.

The conservatory, hands-on training is an integrated curriculum in which almost all subjects are related directly to the acting profession. Five skill courses form the core of our classical approach to training the actor: voice, speech, movement, music and dance. The acting curriculum features improvisation, contact improvisation, storytelling, poetry, text analysis, contemporary and classical scene studies, neutral mask, character mask, clowning, commedia dell’arte, television and film technique, and audition preparation. Further classes include: stage combat, dialectology, theatre history, the business of acting and the Alexander Technique.

Besides great partnerships with Soulpepper Theatre Company, Tarragon Theatre and Theatre by the Bay, George Brown has run a successful mentorship program for a number of years. In the final year, students will be paired with a successful theatre practitioner. This partnership starts in the students’ final semester and continues for roughly a year-long period. Mentors will meet with the student for a minimum three times as the student graduates and begins to transition into the field. This program has been not only a success for the students, but mentors have also expressed how great the experience has been and how rewarding it is to be there for the students as they graduate.

Teacher was excellent and coaching modules were well organized. George Brown campus is in the heart of Toronto. Feels like a real college with many student services, restaurants and places to study. I did my course online but I am going to continue in-person as I miss the deeper interaction with professor and other learners.

This program is all hands-on all the time. The lessons and strategies I learned in the classroom helped prepare me for the exact challenges I faced in the classroom. Instructors were dedicated and empathetic. Best of all, there were more available field placements than there were students. Early childhood educators can't go wrong at George Brown in my opinion.
