Theatre Foundations Programme

Discover the Self

Eight exciting & rewarding months immersed in Rosebud’s theatre culture with classes in all aspects of theatre. 

You will experience the rigors and rewards of artistic training, gain a healthy understanding of your talents, and be equipped with a broad range of theatre skills for future endeavors in the arts.

Classes include acting, singing, movement, technical theatre, visual art, and more. At the end of the year, you will perform in a movement show produced by Rosebud Theatre as part of our "Artist in Training" series.


Training in an arts village and its scenic environment brings vital benefits to your learning. At times the village is buzzing with audiences enjoying dining and a production at Rosebud Theatre; other times it seems forgotten by time on a wintry morning. The place itself will develop your compassion in relationships and deepen your sensitivity to Creation.

In addition to the learning that happens in Rosebud, students venture out to see professional productions in Calgary and beyond. A highlight of the year is a 10- day trip in February to British Columbia, where students see productions, participate in workshops, visit cultural attractions, and be refreshed by the beauty of Canada’s west coast.


At RSA, you will be accepted for who you are and you will be invited to step out of your comfort zone in every class you take. We look for students who cultivate courage in the midst of uncertainty, who practice the art of language and communication, and who develop a curiosity about all of life.

Whether you are just completing your secondary education, or are further along in life and inspired to explore your artistic gifts, Rosebud welcomes you to "Be Transformed" in our Theatre Foundations program.
