Workshops

Teachers can enroll students in one of the proposed workshops, taught by professional artists, in your school.  Workshops aim to prepare students for their upcoming theatrical experience.

Students will engage with the specificities of each production framed within a larger context and as an example of a theatrical genre.

 “Workshop Sheets” include information regarding each workshop’s content and work plan.

To enroll, contact Diane Courvoisier at 416.534.7303 ext. 25 or at dcourvoisier@theatrefrancais.com

Please note that workshops are only offered in French.

Study Guides

To help teachers prepare their students ahead of the show, TfT provides Study Guides.

These guides lay out the different topics and questions explored in productions and suggests activities to stimulate discussion and complement curriculum and learning goals.

Study Guides are uploaded to TfT’s website as the season progresses, and are free.

Theatre Performance Made Easy

TfT offers professional development workshops, specifically designed for teachers, in order to  help deepen their understanding of the theatrical process, and pass on this knowledge to students.

Taught by Joël Beddows, TfT’s Artistic Director, sessions are typically scheduled during PA days.

Theatre Performance Made Easy is available in both French and English.

To enroll, contact Diane Courvoisier at 416.534.7303 ext. 25 or at dcourvoisier@theatrefrancais.com
