The National Theatre School of Canada is a school for the arts.
Since 1960, NTS has offered incomparable training to actors, directors, playwrights, set and costume designers and production specialists to work in professional theatre.
It also delivers a broad range of community programs that make theatre more accessible to all Canadians, as a tool for building empathy and personal development. Among other programs, NTS presents an annual festival for high school students across the country, allowing them to showcase their unique work.
As a global leader in theatre training, NTS is centred on building up communities and tearing down walls. It shares its deep expertise and resources with a broad and diverse community of Canadians to ensure that the performing arts continue to play an important role in society.
