The Programme

This programme will consist of 24 fun-filled, exciting and creative weeks of rehearsal and training, working towards final performances which will be performed the end of. This is a unique opportunity for children between 8 and 14 years of age to participate in a true creative adventure packed with learning and performance opportunities! Do not miss your chance to be in the show!

workshops and Training

Students will be given valuable Creative Drama learning experiences and receive specific skill training through workshops with professional theatre artists. During rehearsals, they are provided with a forum in which to express their own ideas about the events and characters in the play being prepared for production – creative input is an important part of this programme. Students will enjoy workshops in voice, movement and acting techniques with coaches and instructors who are skilled and experienced working with young people and many have worked with First Light Theatre on a number of past productions. By performance time, each student will have received approximately 120 hours of rehearsal and workshop training.


Rehearsals will take place at a location to be determined in central Guelph. Core rehearsal times are Tuesdays from 6:00 to 8:30 pm beginning Oct 18, 2018 up to and including December 13th. In the new year, Saturday rehearsals from 1 – 4 will be added beginning January 7th for a total of two weekly rehearsals which will continue through to performance. Workshop hours are incorporated into the core hours and students and parents are given plenty of notice regarding any extended or additional rehearsal hours and workshop times – particularly as we get closer to the production.
