Ambrose University in Calgary is pleased to announce the launch of the Diploma in Acting program for the Fall of 2015. This two year commencement into the art and industry of theatre prepares students for careers as professional actors, directors, and playwrights. It also provides a strong foundation for a variety of roles in theatre management.
This program is unique in Canada. Our instructors are working theatre professionals who bring relevant, hands-on experiences to the classroom stage. Through intense training, they help students develop the rigour that is required to create good stories along with the personal fortitude needed to sustain a life in the arts. They also introduce students to the Calgary theatre community through collaboration, production, and internships.
For Barrett Hileman, Director of Theatre Program, the most exciting aspect of the program’s design is the integration of faith and learning: “Our program is a unique combination of conservatory training and discipleship, challenging you to incorporate personal faith into art.”
From acting, to stage combat, to playwriting, to dance, the Diploma in Acting aims to create artists of excellence with a foundation of faith.
