FOOTE THEATRE SCHOOL
The Foote Theatre School (FTS) provides year-round classes for all ages and experience levels in Acting, Musical Theatre, Playwriting, Improvisation, and so much more! Over 1,000 students annually are taught by our faculty of 25 local theatre professionals. Established in 1966, FTS is the largest theatre education program in Edmonton and one of the largest in Canada.
We are accepting online registrations. Check out our available classes below. You can also use the column on the right to sort by Age, Discipline, or Term.
Please direct any questions or inquiries about the Foote Theatre School Program to Diana Stevenson, Foote Theatre School Manager, at email@example.com.
Full payment must be made at the time of registration. Please contact the Box Office for details. Registration is available online or by phone. Cancellations up to 7 days before the first class will receive a refund of the course price, minus a $50 processing fee. It is important to note that there will be no refunds after that time. Please note that there is a $25 processing fee to transfer from one class to another if within 7 days prior to the start of the class. Foote Theatre School (FTS) reserves the right to cancel any class with insufficient enrolment. In that event, we will try to place the student in another FTS class or a full refund will be provided.
Classes are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Once a class is full, registrants will be placed on a waiting list in the order they are received.
All Theatre School classes are age-specific. Any exceptions to age limits or application procedures must be approved by the Director of Education and Outreach.
