Learning in action at the Phoenix Theatre

Phoenix Theatre productions serve an integral part of the academic requirements of students enrolled the Department of Theatre’s Bachelor of Fine Arts and Master of Fine Arts degrees.

When you attend the Phoenix Theatre you experience some of this city's most exciting and eclectic theatre – while participating in the education of our students. Our students learn by doing! They are involved in every aspect of these productions – from acting on stage, to the design, creation and management of sets, costumes, props, sound and lighting. 

Discover the difference that the youth, talent and energy of our students can make and get a preview of Canada's next generation of theatre artists!
