Designed for youth (grade 7-12) this three part workshop series run by Bygone Theatre Artistic Executive Director Emily Dix will provide teens with a solid understanding of what it’s like to have a career in performing arts.

These 3 hour workshops (1-4pm) spread over 3 days focus on the following topics;


Day 1: Performing Arts 101: Monday April 12, 1-4pm EST

Day 2: Careers In the Arts: Wednesday April 14, 1-4pm EST

Day 3: Getting the Part: Friday April 16, 1-4pm EST

The course takes place entirely online, and students should have access to a computer and internet connection so that they can join us via Zoom. No previous experience in performing arts is required. The course is taught in English, if you require accommodation email us an we will do our best to accommodate. While you do not need to live in Toronto to participate, this course is best suited to students in South Western Ontario as it will focus on the arts community in and around Toronto.


Each workshop is capped at 20 students, first come, first serve. Payment is for a single student, and if students need to share a computer (it's not advised, if at all possible), each student will still need to pay the full amount.


Students can register for classes individually, or save by booking all 3;
$20 per workshop or $50 for 3 (booked by April 11).

Each day will have a 15 minute break in the middle of class.

To register, email us with the subject line "Spring Break Workshops" and let us know which workshops you would like to take. Payment can be made via Paypal or e-transfer. In the email, please let us know the name of the student, the grade they are currently in, and a brief outline of their experience and/or interest in performing arts. If there are specific topics or questions that they have, they are encouraged to send them ahead of time to ensure they are answered in the workshop, but of course there will be plenty of opportunities for questions and discussion in each session.

Financial accommodations can be made for those who cannot afford the course; contact

Emily Dix at for details.
