Workshop Series: The workshops series is designed to facilitate an intimate environment where students from any level of experience can learn theatrical skills from a leader’s experience. They are open to, and free for all currently enrolled U of T students, in any program or year of study. The vast range of drama skills we have learned through the workshops have been a huge appeal for our students. Past workshops have included: Audition Technique, Hand-to-Hand Stage Combat, Writer’s Discussion, Improvisation Basic and Actor’s Warm-up.

Playwriting Competition: U of T Spotlight is dedicated to supporting student playwrights. An adjudication panel will select one winner and two runners up after the conclusion of the contest. Winning scripts are awarded cash prizes, time with dramaturgical talents to hone their scripts and the opportunity to have a public reading of their work. Student playwrights of all experience levels are encouraged to submit their original, unproduced works.
