Why Join Magnus Theatre Young Company?

Magnus Theatre is the only professional theatre between Winnipeg and Sudbury! We offer students the unique opportunity to learn about theatre in a welcoming and supportive space, guided by trained and experienced theatre professionals. Young Company gives participants a glimpse into the world of professional stage acting - from the audition process to the rehearsal hall and then performing for live audiences on the Magnus Theatre stage.

Supported by Magnus’ team of professional designers and technicians, the cast will develop foundational theatre skills and then demonstrate what they’ve learned in a full-length production in spring 2021.
