Studio 180 Theatre engages, provokes and entertains Toronto audiences through dynamic theatre and innovative Beyond the Stage experiences that delve into social and political issues. Studio 180 IN CLASS offers a wide range of workshop opportunities for more than 1,000 youth annually.
"The work that Studio 180 does to help promote discussing challenging and complex subject matter and posing thought-provoking content to young people is absolutely invaluable in any classroom. Their guest artist-educators create safe spaces, where all voices are encouraged and valued, and foster critical thinking, creativity, and the importance of individual thought. I have witnessed some of my students' bravest work as a direct result of the collaborations with Studio 180 artist educators. The works presented, be it in the theatre or virtually through zoom-theatre, allow my students to not only see themselves through the stories and characters depicted within the narratives, but more importantly allow them to empathize with others. Without a doubt, the collaborations that our classroom has had with Studio 180 and their artists are some of the most rewarding experiences that we have had in a tumultuous year where we are craving connection, creativity and collaboration with others." — Robert Hamilton, Drama Teacher, Jean Augustine Secondary School, Peel
