September (Fall intake)

Think of the Theatre Arts program as a two-year acting, singing and dancing boot camp. We call it "serious fun" and that's what it's all about—working hard, while wholeheartedly embracing the transformative world of musical theatre.  

Prepare for solo or ensemble performances. Explore the technical, imaginative and personal aspects of your craft. Train your voice for spoken word and song. Learn dance techniques and movement for actors. As a Theatre Arts student, you will manage a rigorous schedule that balances classroom training with rehearsal and studio time.

Our instructors have dedicated their careers to musical theatre, and with their guidance, you can become a storyteller extraordinaire, spinning tales with words and dance and song.

What's in a name?

Named in recognition of MacEwan supporters Ron and Dorothy Triffo, our biggest stage gives students and community groups a place to dance, sing, act and perform in the heart of Edmonton. "The arts are essential to a vibrant, dynamic and thoughtful community," says Ron.
