Mentorship Theatre Arts
Theatre Arts MP1 offers a full schedule of theoretical and practical classes as well as hands-on practical training. Classes vary between ensemble courses and private lessons.

Students hone their skills in acting, study the fundamentals of theatre management, and further their interest through elective courses.
The performance component of Theatre Arts MP1 takes place on the BMO Studio Stage where students are expected to be fully involved as actors in the productions and participate in the production process, including costumes, props, lights, or set construction.
The focus of Theatre Arts MP2 & MP3 is leadership development within the arts. A number of specialized courses enable the student to explore areas of special interest, such as writing, directing, design, music direction, stage management or producing.
