Young Actors Company


The Young Actors Company (YAC) is an elite training program for students aged 13-18 who show exceptional talent in the areas of acting and wish to advance their skills. Students from this program have gone on to train at conservatory theatre programs throughout the country or have pursued acting careers.

In this process-oriented program, students work with a professional creative team to hone their acting skills. The culmination of this program is a full scale production on Neptune Theatre’s Scotiabank Stage.
