The Theatre program is offered in alternate years; the next intake is 2015. Theatre offers MFA programs in Acting, Directing with an Emphasis on Teaching, Design for Performing Arts and a Collaborative Program in Theatre Directing with Canadian Stage.

Program focus is on a conservatory studio program for advanced theatre artists who wish to upgrade their skills or who seek the knowledge needed to teach. We offer intense training taught by outstanding professors who work professionally in Toronto - one of the largest and most exciting theatre communities in the world — and abroad. Facilities include four performance spaces, multiple studios and excellent set, costume and prop-building facilities. You’ll enjoy the benefits of outstanding new facilities in the new Accolade Project, including a 325-seat proscenium theatre with orchestra pit and generous stage, wing and backstage areas, an expanded scene shop and two large acting studios.
