Globe Theatre Conservatory

Actor Training Program

The Actor Training Program is a rigorous 16 week process (May to August), occurring bi-ennially, with an emphasis on acting, movement, voice training and text analysis.The program is taught by some of the most respected theatre professionals in Canada.This is a full-time program with classes scheduled six days per week from 10am to 6pm as well as some evening rehearsals.  

The Actor Training Program is an advanced program that will prepare actors for work in the professional theatre at the highest level. Admission is through a competitive audition process. Applicants must be high school graduates and at least 18 years old. Saskatchewan residents will have priority for the available spaces. Participants will be given priority to audition for a role in a Globe Theatre production during the  season immediately following the completion of the program.  

We encourage you to apply for this program if you want to pursue a career as a professional theatre artist. The Actor Training Program prepares artists to work on the Globe Theatre stages and any other Canadian theatres.
