Programs in Development

Half-day Professional Musical Theatre Program

With more options than ever to support online and distributed learning, we are developing an audition-based, half-day musical theatre program for youth who are serious about studying the multidisciplinary craft of musical theatre. Students will have intermediate and advanced instruction on acting, singing, and dance, and will have the opportunity to perform in one or more full-length musicals within the school year. Some high school credit may be available.

Stagecraft

The first of its kind in Western Canada, and unique in the world, our new stagecraft program will be dedicated to teaching young lighting designers, set designers, stage carpenters,  costume designers, stage managers, prop builders and more. Students will learn all aspects of live event production and theatre. Even the younger makers in our community will have access to a safe new scene shop for programs in design, cosplay, film, prop-making, and so much more.

Support Arts Umbrella

Arts Umbrella donors, volunteers, and sponsors share the same belief: that arts education can transform a child’s life. Whether attending an event, making a monthly gift, or donating time, our supporters are vital to helping us inspire creativity for good through the arts.
