Young People's Theatre



Young People's Theatre has been a collaborator for the last decade.

We have partnered with YPT Teacher and Artist Professional Development. Dr. Gallagher serves as a research consultant to the company on their Partner School Inquiry projects.


Young People’s Theatre is the largest Theatre for Young Audiences (TYA) company in Canada and a significant institution in the Canadian professional theatre community.

Over its 48-year history, they have produced many of the most important works that now form the canon of plays for young audiences in this country. Learning is at the centre of everything and YPT is renowned as the showplace for presenting important TYA work developed elsewhere.

In addition to being a producer and presenter of theatre, YPT has also been home to a year-round Drama School for youth since 1969.

The value of YPT artistic programming, particularly for teenage audiences, as part of the Educator Appreciation Event, October 2012 (also pictured, Artistic Director Allen MacInnis and Educational Services Coordinator Lois Adamson).

Dr. Gallagher works with a group of teachers as part of a workshop focused specifically on Blind Spot, a play by Meghan Gardiner.

This was one session which was delivered as part of a workshop series entitled Between Comfort and Discomfort: Exploring the Opportunities to Engage with Issue-based Theatre in Your Classroom, November 2009.

The Shape of Power workshop for teachers, teacher candidates, parents and caregivers which was co-created and facilitated by Kathleen, Karen Gilodo, Dominique Rivière and Anne Wessels (also pictured).

It was a workshop devised to explore power and how it operates in schools, particularly in connection with The Shape of a Girl by Joan MacLeod which was a part of our 2010/2011 season, April 2011.
