What is Theatre for Young Audiences?

We believe theatre is a powerful tool. It dramatizes and contextualizes the world. It invites us to walk in other’s shoes; see the world through their eyes.

All of our Theatre for Young Audiences (TYA) shows are grounded in the Ontario curriculum; they teach, through theatre.

Bonus: we hire educators to create study packages, so your classroom can get the most out of the experience.

Watch theatre on demand.

Stream shows from your theatre in your home.

Our new on-demand streaming service brings the theatre to you.
Watch dozens of titles from our ever-growing library.


We couldn’t do it without our supporters.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for supporting live theatre, local artists, and Canadian storytelling.
