"I was blown away by the level of dedication, enthusiasm, and devotion to our learning I experienced in each class... I would participate in another Ryerson Theatre intensive in a heartbeat."
- Adult Acting Intensive Participant, 2016

Message From The Director 2017

We’re thrilled to embark on the second year of the Adult Summer Acting Intensives at the Ryerson School of Performance!

Last year’s Adult Summer Acting Intensive was very successful and we were fortunate to work with a group of generous and talented people.  After many months of planning, it was exciting to put faces to names as we met in person in front of the Ryerson Theatre and began our one-week adventure in actor training.

We also ended up with a long waiting list of people who wanted to join, so we’ve expanded!  Along with our week-long experience of theatre school training that anyone can join, now called Foundation in Acting, we’re offering a course in Improv Comedy, and a week of Professional Scene Study for professional actors and students enrolled in a full-time acting program.

As always, we aim to provide quality instruction in a welcoming environment.

We look forward to working with you!
