Recent Productions

Each year, Humber Theatre presents a number of original productions which demand the full creative engagement of performance and production students under the guidance of internationally-recognized artists.

We also present special workshop projects throughout every year which expose students to a wide range of experiences and partnerships with professional theatre companies and artists.

A key introduction to our collaborative training is Community Week, the first week of the academic year, during which every student in Performance and Production works collaboratively with a team of professional artists to create a public performance in five days. This performance is always site-specific and theatrical.
