Workshops & Tours
Family workshops are pre- or post-show one-hour workshops offered in connection with YPT’s public performances throughout the season. They provide an opportunity for families attending a play to creatively engage with the themes of our production while having the unique experience of participating in a drama workshop together. The workshops are offered for free or at a minimal cost.
Some of the workshops we offer:
- Play Writing
- Stage Combat
- Community Building
- Street Theatre
Themes we can explore together:
- Conflict Resolution & Peace Building
- Civic Engagement
- Social Justice & Change
Led by various YPT staff members, we offer “Tours for a Toonie”, a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to mount a production. Participants are led though our shops (Props, Wardrobe, and Scene shop), through the lighting and sound booth and occasionally backstage. They are given a history of the building and YPT.
