Follow your passion for acting and lay the foundation for your career in the performing arts. The two-year, full-time Douglas College Theatre Diploma Program provides you with professional training and education in five key areas: voice and speech, movement, acting, theatre history and production. You will work closely with students in the Stagecraft and Event Technology program to produce four major theatre productions and learn behind-the-scenes skills such as publicity and promotion.
Successful actors are self-aware, confident, and skilled in communication, empathy, observation, leadership and teamwork. These skills will not only prepare you for roles on stage, but also for a variety of other career paths within the arts and beyond; you could purse such roles as director, producer, casting agent, arts administrator, broadcaster or teacher.
Once you've been accepted to the College, you'll need to audition for the Theatre program. More details are available on our auditions page.
All details are in the Program and Course Catalogue
