At NTS I found creative partners, life-long friends and my voice as a writer. It was also a lot of fun.
Jason MAGHANOY (Playwriting, 2006) - Playwright
Attending the National Theatre School of Canada was tantamount to embarking on a creative treasure hunt where determination and perseverance rewarded you with confidence and experience. The desire to tell powerful stories is applauded and the need to incite change is encouraged. NTS is genuinely a place where a young writer from a tiny outport in Newfoundland found her voice, my voice.
Megan COLES (Playwriting, 2009) - Playwright
The years I spent at the National Theatre School were like being shot from a cannon; there was no choice but to dare yourself. As we rocketed along, we were instructed and supported by the luminaries of the theatre community. Back on the ground, our diplomas were recognized as a most sought after passport. People knew we'd been launched by the School.
