Bursaries and Scholarships

No Strings Theatre offers a quality program at a competitive price. Market research shows that programs such as this in downtown Toronto average at least 30-50% more than our fees.   This is our  attempt to make this program accessible and attract a larger demographic pool of  individuals who could greatly benefit from this program.

We feel our mandate to provide artistic training as well as a community performance opportunities  is highly important for  youth’s  at this developmental growth phase.    We are therefore, very dependent on our tuition fees to meet our financial needs including hiring trained staff and providing exceptional programming.

We do realize, however, that there are families who simply can’t afford specialized programs such as this, or individuals that are supporting themselves or their own artistic education.   We at No Strings Theatre have can offer a few subsidized spaces for students who meet certain criteria.
