York University offers numerous performance opportunities for students interested
in theatre as a hobby or as a major. There are two mainstage productions each year, typically a comedy in the fall and
a drama in the spring. The spring semester also includes traveling children's theatre:
students travel to surrounding area elementary schools to perform free programs for
children twice a week.
In addition, there are regular student directed productions that give theatre majors the opportunity to see the theatre process from the other side of the stage. If acting isn't your thing, there are plenty of opportunities for behind-the-scenes work such as running the tech booth, building sets, and managing props and costumes or assisting performers with hair and makeup.
