Act One School of Drama


Act One is Durham Region's most experienced and comprehensive source of quality drama training for ages 5 to Adult. We offer classes for those discovering  drama for the first time and more experienced individuals looking to 
enhance their performance skills.

Act One offers classes in Stage Theatre, Musical Theatre, Improvisation, Acting On Camera, Voice Over for Radio and TV, Directing and more.

Act One's training facility includes a full performance stage with computerized lighting and sound, comprehensive on-site props and costume resources and full A/V film and video capability.

All our classes feature a maximum 10:1 student to staff ratio, narrow age ranges to maximize student engagement and enjoyment, a minimum of three performance opportunities each year and an organic class format that adapts each course to the needs of the students, rather than forcing all students into a fixed teaching structure. To ensure the most flexible and supportive teaching environment possible, all classes are held in our performance studio, not a generic 'activities' room.

Act One also offers Durham Region's most comprehensive program of advanced classes for high school aged drama students to build upon and broaden the drama training they receive in regular school programs.

Act One stands behind its reputation and commitment to quality teaching - Students do not pay until they have tried a class and all students have the freedom to withdraw at any time with a pro-rated refund.
