What does the Globe Theatre School offer?

Globe Theatre School offers a wide selection of multi-disciplinary classes taught by Saskatchewan industry professionals.
Since its inception in 2006, the GTS has become one of the most important initiatives in our company’s history. Not only are we creating pathways for young Saskatchewan artists to pursue successful and rewarding careers throughout Canada, we are also helping them find confidence in themselves.
We now offer theatre training and acting classes for students from two years old to adult, as well as multimedia classes (short film creation), intensive workshops for beginners and professionals, and courses in improvisation.
 

What can students/parents expect when they sign up for GTS?

Our classes encourage children’s imaginations and place value on their creative growth. This is why we often don’t start with a script. Students are supported by their instructors as they collaboratively create a new work of theatre. They write monologues, create their own characters, and together build elements of narrative. The classes are designed to build young people’s confidence in their own ideas and to encourage collaboration.
Overall, our approach is one that gives students creative freedom and helps them build strong relationships, while being a whole lot of FUN.
 

How many students are there per class?

Class sizes vary with a minimum of six and a maximum of twelve.
 

Where can I find more information about your instructors?

You can visit the Meet The Instructors page on our website.
 

How can I register for classes? 

For most classes, you can register through the website or through the box office (525-6400).

Some classes and workshops require an interview for admission. Please contact Globe Theatre School Director Shaunna Dunn (shaunnad@globetheatrelive.com or 924-2834) for more information.

 

When can I register for classes?

Registration typically opens two months before class start date. There are two terms of classes: Fall (September), Winter (January).

Intensive laboratory sessions for school aged students are available in Spring and Summer, depending on availability. Not all courses are offered in each term, so please check the website for details.

 

How fast do classes fill up?

As with most schools, some classes fill up quicker than others. To avoid disappointment, please register early.
 

How much do classes cost?

Class cost varies depending on length and skill level from $80.00 to $600.00. Please check the class descriptions for pricing. Some classes are eligible for Advanced Pricing; if you register early, you receive a discount. This is not available for all classes, so please check the website for details.
 

What if the class I want is full?

GTS creates waiting lists for most classes. Please contact Globe Theatre School Director Shaunna Dunn (shaunnad@globetheatrelive.com or 924-2834).

If we cannot accommodate you, please ensure to sign up for our email list (by emailing theatreschool@globetheatrelive.com) and be the first to know for the next term.

 

Are there funding or sponsorship opportunities available?

Absolutely. We encourage families to contact Creative Kids directly for funding opportunities.

For undergrad students, the Saskatchewan Arts Board offers the Premier’s Centennial Scholarship for professional workshops and courses. Visit their website for more information.

Please contact Globe Theatre School Director Shaunna Dunn (shaunnad@globetheatrelive.com or 924-2834) for more information on funding opportunities.

 

What if I need a refund?

You are entitled to a 100% refund up to 14 days before class begins or 50% refund if 14 days or less before the class begins. No refund will be given from the first day of class except for medical reasons (doctor’s certificate required).
 

What if my class is cancelled?

Globe Theatre School reserves the right to cancel any program with insufficient enrolment. In that event, we will contact you by phone and email, and full refunds will be provided or we will try to place the student in another class.
 

Are my GTS classes tax-deductible?

GTS classes are eligible for the Children’s Fitness Tax Credit and the Children’s Arts Tax Credit, but can only apply for one of the two. To receive a receipt for tax purposes, please contact the Theatre School Registrar (theatreschool@globetheatrelive.com).
 

What if I can't make it to class? Who do I contact?

Call or email the Theatre School Registrar (theatreschool@globetheatrelive.com or 924-2834) and leave a message.
 

Are there presentations for each class?

The Globe Theatre School classes are process oriented. Most Children and Teen classes will share their work with family on the last day of class, while advanced teen classes will have more formal performances. One of the benefits to taking a class through the GTS is access to Globe Theatre’s professional Main Stage, Templeton Studio Cabaret, and rehearsal spaces. Presentations and take place in any of the above areas depending on availability. GTS also has access to the Regina Downtown Open Air Plaza, where we have staged class presentations in the past.
 

Does Globe Theatre School bring workshops to schools or community groups?

Yes. We bring drama, improv, and movement workshops to schools and community groups across Saskatchewan. Please contact Globe Theatre School Director Shaunna Dunn (shaunnad@globetheatrelive.com or 924-2834) to inquire about workshop possibilities.
