TORONTO FRINGE YOUTH PROGRAMS


A group of young people sitting around a table happily collaborating.
Just two weeks left to apply for Teen Fringe and New Young Reviewers!

The New Young Reviewers Program, supported by the Jon Kaplan Legacy Fund, is a workshop series and writing group for emerging theatre and performance reviewers Canada-wide, ages 15 and up. Led by Signy Lynch (Contemporary Theatre Review, Canadian Theatre Review, Intermission Magazine) and Stephanie Fung (Kingston Theatre Alliance, Canadian Theatre Review, Single Thread Theatre), this program focuses on introducing participants to the basics of theatre reviewing, helping them develop responses to Toronto Fringe performances. It also encourages participants to explore new, creative approaches to criticism that are emerging in the field, and to begin to define themselves as critics and reviewers. 

Teen Fringe, supported by Neville Austin, is a youth arts initiative for teens aged 12-17, inviting young artists to train with leading professionals in acting, singing, dancing, and writing. This program is a partnership with the Toronto Fringe and Edge of the Sky. After 5 days of in-person training with leading theatre, music, and dance professionals, participants will display their learnings at a final performance at the Tranzac on Saturday, July 16th. 


Find all the information to apply here.

Thank you to all who applied to the TENT Program, Tanya Rintoul will be reaching out to selected candidates for interviews.
