Outreach within our wider theatre community has always been a staple in Hart House Theatre's mandate and programming. We are thrilled to be able to provide programming for community members both inside U of T, and theatre lovers beyond it. 

For more information on any of the following opportunities, please contact Hart House Theatre's Education and Production Coordinator Gillian Lewis. Be sure to check out our Hart House Classes on offer.


Hart House Theatre Slams are a part of our continuing initiative to engage emerging actors, and U of T students, in a showcase event.

The Classical Theatre Slam is a thrilling performance opportunity for actors of all experience levels to increase accessibility and inclusivity in the theatre community through the use of non-contemporary text.

The Musical Theatre Slam is a fun performance opportunity for singers, dancers, and theatre artists of all experience levels to take to the stage and celebrate all things musical theatre.

From initial video submissions, a shortlist of performers compete for cash prizes, a special prize from the partnership company, and ultimately, to be crowned the Hart House Theatre Slam Winner. Submissions open every spring.

Past partnering companies have been: Shakespeare Bash'd (For Classical Theatre Slam) and Singular Sensation and Musical Stage Company (For Musical Theatre Slam).
