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 school@neptunetheatre.com.

Covid-19 Update

In lieu of the Nova Scotian provincial updates regarding health and wellbeing, we are assessing all of our programs.

We are currently working with Public Health Officials and consulting with community groups to be sure that we bring you the best possible programs in the safest and most accessible way. We want to thank you for your patience as we work through this. 

If anything is cancelled or postponed, we will update our website and social media and inform participants directly by email. We have not yet released our summer camp plans, but hope to do so by the first week of June.

If you would like to give us your feeback on how you would like to see our training moving forward you can fill out our survey (Click Here)


Auditions for YPCo Boot Camp and Prep:

Students must still send in a little audition video with three components:

1) a short monologue (1-2 minutes) ideally from a play.

2) a short song (1-2 minutes) any style

3) a thirty second blurb telling us who you are and what you love about performing and what you hope to get out of the program. Is there a program or aspect of a program that interests you most.

*Be sure that your clip is labelled with your name and the program you are auditioning for. 

The simplest way to share is to download it to youtube, unlisted and share the link with your name and contact to school@neptunetheatre.com.

We would like these submissions by June 26th.



Weather Closures

Please note: in lieu of the many weather watch warnings we get this time of year, please review our weather closure policy below.

Neptune Theatre reserves the right to cancel classes due to weather conditions. Neptune Theatre monitors the closures of public transit and public institutions, as well as weather warnings to determine when a closure should be made. If Metro Transit is closed, so are we.

We will email parents if a decision to cancel classes is reached. If a class must be ended early due to worsening weather conditions, parents of students will be called directly.
