The History of Winnipeg Studio Theatre’s StudioWorks Academy

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 Youth Ensemble offers year-round classes in triple threat technique for students aged 10-18 divided into junior (ages 10-14) and senior levels (ages 15+).

The troupe made their theatrical debut at the Winnipeg Fringe Festival in 2004 and have since 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.
