The National Theatre School of Canada offers incomparable training for actors, directors, designers, writers, production specialists, and artists of all kinds to create work that matters.
"The School taught me, on the one hand, to be very true to myself in terms of a vision, to stick to that vision and be very articulate, clear and perseverant about it. And at the same time, it exposed me to new ideas and challenged me to go beyond what I initially thought was the right choice. I was encouraged to remain flexible in terms of approaches, to stretch myself stylistically."
