At TNB Theatre School we pride ourselves on offering our students a safe, fun and supportive environment where they can learn and develop their theatre skills.

With Covid-19 restrictions in place, we are working hard to make sure we maintain our standards of communication with our students and parents. Our current plan is to go ahead with our fall/winter programs while adjusting to follow current health and safety guidelines. As these are updated on a regular basis, we reserve the right to make updates as well. This could mean anything from adjusting class sizes, mandating masks, or moving classes online.

In the case of a second outbreak of COVID-19 across the province that forces us to close, we are prepared to move all classes online. We will adapt our theatre school rehearsal hall into a live-stream studio for instructors’ use. Class time will be made up of a combination of live instruction, pre-recorded lessons, and additional student-led follow-up activities. In any event of a change in our plans, parents and students will be contacted directly.
