Student Shows

Everything seen on stage and all that goes on behind the scenes is created by our students under the guidance of professional guest artists.

For all NTS graduating class shows, we are happy to ask you to Pay-what-you-think. This inclusive method allows all members of the community to engage with the theatre arts, no matter their budget.

How much do you wish to give to support the young artists on stage and backstage? Leave the amount of your choice in the boxes as you exit, or make an online donation today!

Don't forget to book your tickets through the Box Office of the Monument-National, online or at 514.871.2224.

The Observed Flight of Birds, created by the class of 2018 of the National Theatre School, with 2b Theatre and David Gagnon Walker, asks what information we can trust and how we decide to trust it. Intersecting stories follow people in a society falling precipitously into chaos as they try to make sense of a new world order.
