Q&As and Tools of the Trade
Following most of our performances here at YPT, we hold a Question and Answer (Q&A) period or a Tools of the Trade (TOTT) session in order to deepen students’ understanding of the subject of the play or of the dramatic process. Click here for more information
Subsidized Programs for Schools
Seats for Every Kid enables schools in low and mixed-income areas across the GTA opportunities to attend YPT productions by offering free and subsidized tickets. This program is made possible by the generous support of TD Bank Group.
The Wish List Program enables schools in low and mixed-income areas to attend productions at YPT by offering a limited number of “rush” discounted tickets. Qualified schools submitting a completed Wish List form will be contacted approximately three weeks before their requested show dates and informed of the price and availability (discounts and availability vary per show).
Arts Impact is an opportunity for students to experience a YPT performance and workshops at a highly subsidized rate. Arts Impact packages are offered to specific schools which are selected in consultation with the Arts Departments at the TDSB and TCDSB. Each Arts Impact package includes a pre-show workshop, up to 60 tickets to a performance followed by a Q&A with the cast, and a post-show workshop. The pre- and post-show workshops guide students through a series of drama exercises as a way to more deeply explore show themes. They are designed to enhance students’ theatre-going experience. Each workshop is an hour in length and can take place either at YPT or the participating school. The maximum number of participants in a workshop is 30 students, so pre- and post-show workshops for larger groups are generally divided by class.
Arts Impact was offered for the following productions in the 2016/17 season:
Spirit Horse: Oct. 18-28, 2016 | Grades 4 to 8
Seussical: Nov. 14-Dec. 31, 2016 | Grades SK to Grade 6
James and the Giant Peach: Feb. 6-Mar. 18, 2017 | Grades 1 to 6
Boys With Cars: Mar. 23-Apr.1, 2017 | Grades 8 to 12
Munschtime!: Apr. 17-May 14, 2017 | Grades JK to Grade 3
