Following the great success of the International English Programs, The University of Toronto now invites high school, undergraduate, and graduate students to participate in its exciting new International Summer Theatre Programs. Designed to help aspiring young artists explore their potential in the expressive arts, our intensive arts immersion programs offer students the unique opportunity to work with some of Canada’s finest creative talents and to enhance their understanding of the global arts landscape through direct exposure to Toronto’s rich, multicultural, and thriving arts scene.

Our students experience daily professional-level workshops in the dramatic arts, where they are challenged to develop their own artistic voices and cultivate self-discipline as they learn how to work cooperatively with others. The program’s small class sizes ensure that students are given the chance to work closely with workshop instructors to receive personalized attention and get feedback on individual creative projects.

Outside daytime classes, students are encouraged to take part in the city’s diverse, world-class cultural activities. Extracurricular group outings to professional theatre productions and concerts are regularly organized for students and are a crucial feature of our programs.

Beyond learning key concepts in the performing arts, our students learn invaluable social, leadership, and communication skills. Being immersed in a focused English environment where students can continually practice their language skills facilitates students’ linguistic abilities while helping them to build confidence.

Furthermore, the program introduces youth to what is involved in becoming a student at The University of Toronto, one of North America’s most prestigious academic institutions. From living on campus in the beautiful dormitories at University College to experiencing the school’s reputably high standards in coursework, students will gain first-hand experience of life at The University of Toronto while making like-minded friends from other countries.
