After five successful cohorts, Theatre at York University and Canadian Stage will no longer be accepting applications for the joint MFA Program in Stage Direction and will retire this program with the conclusion of the current student cohort.

Building from this successful program, however, Theatre at York and Canadian Stage are developing a new collaboration that will aim to expand opportunities for experiential education in theatre. This evolution of the partnership will integrate existing programs at York with professional opportunities at Canadian Stage, with particular focus on cultivating talent among emerging BIPOC theatre artists. We look forward to providing professional experiences to York Theatre students in the future.
