Visits to the local theatres

17 youth from the Esplanade were part of one-of-a-kind week during which we visited all 5 of our local theatres. We discovered the wigs and costumes department of Canadian Opera Company on Front St; we attended Shakespeare in High Park produced by CanStage (at the Berkeley Theatre); we had a backstage tour and walked on the stage of the Sony Centre; we were part of a drama workshop with the City Youth Academy at Soulpepper (in the Distillery District); we had a backstage tour of Young People’s Theatre and enjoyed a dress rehearsal by the youth drama camp; and, last but not least, we had a talk with award-winning artist Nova Bhattacharya organized by the Sony Centre!
