Humber’s Theatre Performance Program is one of Canada's leading actor-training institutions, known for its exceptional focus on devised and original work. Our three-year professional training program combines rigorous training in physical theatre, and more traditional approaches, to allow our graduates to find success wherever their career path takes them.
We believe in:
We are interested in actors with a sense of curiosity, explorers and ground-breakers, who may combine acting talent with other interests such as writing, directing and producing. Through our consecutive BFA (Honours in Acting) with York University, our graduates can choose to continue into further academic possibilities.
Thanks to the diversity and unique skills of our student body, we have developed a distinct identity and strong community in the professional world. Our graduates have careers as actors, directors, producers, and writers. They are film actors, music theatre actors, puppeteers, voice actors, all part of the Humber network of artists. They are creators above all, transforming Canadian theatre with original voices that spring from a diversity of cultures and perspectives.
Sebastian Marziali is an actor. And a director. And a producer. And a world traveler. And, under his stage name El Toro, he’s also a “boylesque” performer. In his world, life is a balancing act, both literally and figuratively.
Cara Ricketts and Dwain Murphy both graduated from Humber in 2005, and both are accomplished actors. But that was all the two had in common – until last year, that is, when both were cast in CBC’s adaptation of The Book of Negroes.
Giacomo Gianniotti graduated from Humber’s Theatre Performance program in 2012. Just two years later he’s landed a recurring role on Selfie, a new comedy on ABC, opposite Karen Gillan and John Cho.
