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, YPCo, Neptune Prep and mainstage productions.
*Please note that all of our programs involve a paid fee. For inquiries or to ask about scholarship or bursary options contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Are you struggling to find accessible repertoire through your transition? Join award-winning transfeminine musical theatre actor & writer Avery Jean Brennan to find the best fit for your unique voice and expression! Topics covered include taking songs out of context to better suit your story and finding ways to highlight your voice the way you want to, followed by a guided discussion on navigating the industry as transgender artists.
Participants are asked to bring three printed copies of their sheet music for a musical theatre song (any era) of their choice (one in a binder, hole-punched, for our pianist).
Please note that only transgender & gender non-conforming artists will be permitted as participants. Auditing for teachers available upon request.
