Registering for Globe Theatre School
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?
How can I register for classes?
For most classes, you can register through the website
or through the Box Office (306.525.6400).
Some classes and workshops require an interview for admission. Please contact Theatre School & Community Engagement Coordinator Aimee Garchinski at firstname.lastname@example.org or 306.924.2834 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 quickly do classes fill?
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. 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 Theatre School & Community Engagement Coordinator Aimee Garchinski at email@example.com
If we cannot accommodate you, please ensure to sign up for our email list (by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org) and be the first to know for the next term.
Are there funding or sponsorship opportunities available?
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.
When is payment due?
Payment of the full balance for Globe Theatre School fees is due by the first day of class. After the first class, a payment reminder will be issued via email for any outstanding balance. If payment is not received within two weeks of this reminder, a late payment fee of $25 will be applied. If payment has not been received in full by the final week of regular classes, the student may be unable to participate in final presentations. If a student has outstanding fees, neither they nor members of their household may register for another GTS class until such time as the outstanding balance has been paid in full.
What payment methods do you accept?
Payment for GTS classes can be made in the following ways:
- In person at Globe Theatre’s Box Office by cash, cheque, Interac, Mastercard, or Visa
- Over the phone by calling 306.525.6400 and providing your Visa or Mastercard number
Online – if you have already registered for a class but want to pay online,
You will be asked to enter your credit card information.
Unfortunately, Globe Theatre does not accept American Express or e-transfers. .
Preparing for Globe Theatre School
I've been to GTS before. Do I need to complete another registration form?
We do our best to make the registration process simple and easy. Part of this means keep a consistent record of all of our families.
Because of this, students must complete a new form for every new session. The only circumstance in which you will not be asked for a new form is for a Winter session after participating in the previous Fall session.
Summer Lab students must complete a new form for the Fall session.
What does my child need to bring?
The only thing students will consistently need to bring is a water bottle (we have a cooler for students to refill bottles).
Students should also, if desired, bring a light snack to have on break during class. Snacks cannot be refrigerated or microwaved.
Your child maybe asked throughout the session to bring something from home, so it is important to pay attention to any GTS communication throughout the session.
What should my child wear to class?
Students should be prepared to be active every class period, as GTS classes are highly physical. Certain sessions will also be led by local dance instructors.
Ensure that your child is consistently dressed prepared for activity (no denim or restrictive clothing) for each week of class.
Your child maybe asked throughout the session to bring a costume piece from home, so it is important to pay attention to any GTS communication throughout the session.
Where does my child need to be and when?
Globe Theatre is located at 1801 Scarth Street
, in the Prince Edward Building, across from Cornwall Centre.
During the Fall-Winter, unless otherwise notified, all classes will meet at the 4th Floor Box Office where their instructor will meet them to go into class.
Students should arrive no later than 5 minutes before their class' scheduled start time.
How do I contact GTS?
For general inquiry about registration and programming, contact Theatre School & Community Engagement Coordinator Aimee Garchinski
To make payment on a course or to register, contact our Box Office at 306.525.6400.
If your child will be late or miss a class, contact the Theatre School ASAP at email@example.com or 306.924.2834.
Where can I park?
Metered parking is available (but very limited) on 11th Avenue, and often available on Scarth Street alongside Victoria Park. Metres are free after 6pm.
The Hamilton Street Parkade, Rose Street Parkade, and Cornwall Centre Parkade are all within a five-minute walk of the Theatre and offer free or reduced rate parking after 5:30pm.
Is there a performance at the end of the session?
Most GTS classes (excluding Adult programming) feature a presentation on the last day of class.
Specific performance details will be communicated throughout the session, so keep an eye out for emails and letters outlining your child's performance.
Can my child leave on their own?
Students aged 13+ are permitted to leave independently with parental permission on the registration form.
Students under the age of 13 (or who do not have parental permission) will not be permitted to leave the 4th Floor Box Office without a parent/guardian to leave with them. We ask that those in charge of pick-up arrive no later than five minutes prior to the scheduled end time of the class.
