Actor Training for the 21st Century

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:

  • developing creative artists with a strong foundation in essential skills
  • ensuring our graduates have the business skills to make their living as artist/performers
  • providing a well-rounded education as well as comprehensive training 
  • developing collaborative work that is original, thoughtful, challenging 
  • exploring inter-cultural and multidisciplinary theatre that speaks in the present to a vision of the future 

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.
