StudioWorks Background Info

Winnipeg Studio Theatre’s StudioWorks Academy was launched in 2004 to provide emerging musical theatre artists an outlet for intensive training. It is a two-tiered program combining in-class instruction and production work. The StudioWorks Academy offers year-round classes in triple threat technique for students aged 11 and up (summer and fall/winter sessions). In 2020, the inaugural Made in Manitoba Masterclass series began, offering specialized musical theatre workshops to students of all ages.

The StudioWorks troupe made their theatrical debut at the Winnipeg Fringe Festival in 2004; since then they have performed in DisneyWorld as part of the Magic Music Days program, made several tours to New York City for Broadway training opportunities and was  featured at the Canada Games 2017 Opening Ceremonies. Selected past productions include: Frozen Jr. (virtual), Seussical the Musical, Legally Blonde, Urinetown, Forbidden Broadway, Edges, Love Notes, First Date – Last Kiss and the sold out production of School of Rock which combined the youth/adult ensembles.
