At Neptune Theatre School we pride ourselves on process based learning, with programs focused on building skills rather than simply “putting on a show”. Learning from qualified instructors, (who also happen to be professional actors and leaders in Halifax’s artistic community), students will obtain the best theatre training in the city.

Neptune Theatre School is a safe learning environment, with focus on creativity and growth for each individual student. Our Saturday Seasonal Classes cater to youth ages 18 months to 18years. With an array of classes in Drama, Musical Theatre and Improv there is something for everyone!

We believe in building opportunities for our students at Neptune Theatre School, encouraging those who attend our Seasonal Classes to later go on to audition for our Boot Camps, Young Company (YAC and YPCo), Prep Program and Main Stage Productions.


Mission of the Neptune Theatre School


Providing a safe, professional learning environment for students of all ages in multiple theatre disciplines.

Our training aims to build skills, confidence, creativity and collaboration.

Our seasonal classes serve as training ground for students 18 years and under who wish to explore Drama, Musical Theatre and Improvisation.


Seasonal Class Progression:

Fall SKILLS and CONFIDENCE October 13th-December 1st (8 Weeks)
Winter PERFORMATIVE January 19th-March 9th (8 weeks)
Spring  CREATIVE March 30th-May 11th (6 weeks)


This progression allows students to build skills from session to session or to join in in a specific area that they wish to focus on.

After attending Seasonal Classes it suggested that students move on to audition for our pre-professional training Boot Camps, Young Companies and Prep Program.
