Annual Performance

Winter Showcase

A fabulous opportunity for our students to showcase and demonstrate what they work on in class throughout the fall and early winter! Mindfully set in a fun and informal theatre atmosphere, this special event provides a ‘first-performance-of-the-season’ experience for our students 8 to 18 yrs in our live-performance programs. 

It’s particularly a great opportunity for those students who are relative newcomers to performance training, and helps cement their learning and training so far, prepping them for the more involved/advanced 

Get STAGEstruck production in the spring! This variety showcase is a purposely informal demonstration (no formal costuming or props or tech) and features a number of pieces in all disciplines – acting, singing, dancing and musical theatre. The Winter Showcase is a wonderful way for families to watch their young performers in early action, and see the kinds of things we get up to ~ really focusing on helping the performer create their character and performance from within without relying on all the tech and production layers we add on later! 

This show happens in mid-January and sometimes happens at the Fairview Library Theatre or the Flato Markham Theatre, or other venues. We try to move this one around so students get to experience different types of theatres!

Season Overview & Student Feedback

  • Our Season runs from mid-Sept to end of May with weekly classes for each program.
  • The program Levels progress from primary through senior, introducing or enhancing the various components of the discipline and program. Each Level covers a 3 to 4 yr age range.  Depending on age, experience, and when they begin with us, a student could be in the same Level for 1 to 3 seasons.  Students learn how to function as both leaders and followers, experiencing the range of responsibilities and learning opportunities associated with being in a class with a variety of ages, personalities and types of learners.
  • As students progress each season and also through the Levels, they build their personal and performer’s toolkit with more in-depth advanced learning through various teaching tools, focused on skill acquisition, technical development, and practical performance application.  As the Level increases, the in-studio class-time lengthens and the expectations increase with more or lengthier materials, more ‘mature’ but still age-appropriate content, and more advanced learning tools requiring increasingly more at-home preparation time between classes.  The Level 3, 4 and 5 programs may also include more shows/performances/filming opportunities.
  • Each class and student is provided with a detailed Course Curriculum Outline at the beginning of the season outlining all performance or filming requirements and specific curriculum goals, learning tools and teaching strategies ~ a roadmap of where and how we’ll take the class through the season! We discuss specific goals with each student, at the start, at the mid-way point and at the end of the season so we always know what we’re working towards!  And each student receives a personalized Progress Report at the end of each season celebrating their amazing achievements and growth, setting intentions for their continued development, and recommending next steps, all based on the student’s own goals and interests for their training and development.
