Francophone Theatre Youth Workshops Children

In school

Ages 6-18

Available in French only 

In order to get a better handle on the world of creation, why not experience a thrilling moment with artists or those who gravitate around them? Learn more about their aspirations, collectively reflect on the big question that move them, or try your hand at their craft in playful fashion. Allow your students to fully immerse themselves in the world of the show, and offer them a richer experience overall. 

This year, let the NAC’s French Theatre treat you to a visit from an artist in preparation for the following student matinee performances. Hurry up and take advantage of this limited time offer! Make sure to include the request in your registration form for student matinee tickets. 

For more information, reach out to Elyse Gauthier, French Theatre's education and community relations officer:
