A beacon for talent

The National Theatre School of Canada has been fostering generations of leading performing arts specialists since 1960. Located in Montréal, it is one of the few schools in the world that offers professional theatre training in English and French in a setting that unites all theatre arts: acting, playwriting, directing, set and costume design and production.

The school provides an open environment and the tools all students require to achieve their individual potential as unique artists. Teachers at the School are working professionals, leaders in their disciplines who bring both innovation and experience to the classroom setting.

The National Theatre School continues to evolve by training artists who are informed, curious and culturally diverse; they represent the future of our Canadian culture. Power Corporation has been a proud supporter of the school since 1993 in its goal of ensuring that no qualified applicant is denied an opportunity for lack of financial resources.

Since its initial gift in 1993, Power Corporation has been a constant and generous donor to the National Theatre School of Canada.
