Actor Training for the 21st Century

Humber’s Theatre Performance Program is a three-year professional training program dedicated to developing diverse artists with an interest in intercultural and multi-disciplinary work. It has become known as one of Canada's leading actor-training institutions for its exceptional focus on devised and original work through a rigorous combination of physical and classical approaches.

We are interested in actors who have a sense of curiosity, who are explorers and ground-breakers, who may combine acting talent, writing potential and producing ambitions to change our expectations of theatre and performance. Through our consecutive BFA (Honours in Acting) with York University, our graduates can be prepared for both professional careers and further academic possibilities.

Our graduates have careers as actors, directors, producers, and writers. You will find them on stages across the country from Shakespeare to burlesque, from contemporary drama to puppetry. You will find them as actors on film, on television and voicing animated characters. They are creators above all, looking to expand Canadian theatre with original voices that spring from many cultures and perspectives.

Take a look at our faculty, success stories and some of our productions to see where your dreams might take you.
