There are no auditions to attend Artstrek. Students are accepted into the program on a first-come, first-served basis—provided their online application is complete and their referral is satisfactory. If the program is full, students will be placed on a waiting list in the order their applications were received.
Applying to Artstrek is a straightforward process… but it is intricate and a variety of materials are required in order to fully complete the online form. We have put together a checklist of materials and information to gather prior to beginning the online application process. We recommend you be as prepared as possible before you begin your Artstrek application.
All students will be asked to select which week they wish to attend as part of their application. We call each week an Exploration, and there are two different Explorations that students are applicable for. Artstrek Explorations are designed for the following types of students:
This program is recommended for enthusiastic theatre lovers who are 12* to 15 years old.
This program is intended for 16 and 18 year olds who have a keen interest in theatre and a dedication to increasing their skill level.
Please note that there is little difference in curriculum between the different Explorations; however, the depth and complexity of the work increases with the average age level of students attending each Exploration.
*12 year olds need to be completing Grade Seven in 2023 in order to attend.
All Artstrek students must be recommended by a teacher, director, or another adult (not your parents or guardians) who is familiar with your interest and/or experience in the performing arts. We recommend you speak to your referrer before submitting your online application.
If you are a new to Artstrek, your referrer will automatically receive an email once your online application form has been submitted. For that reason, please do not submit the same form more than once. If you do, your referrer will be emailed multiple times – we really don’t want to SPAM your referrer.
All application information, including medical information and reference information, is collected by Theatre Alberta for the purpose of administering the Artstrek program. All information is considered confidential and is not released to third parties without consent.
If a registered participant decides not to attend Artstrek 2023 prior to the program, they MUST inform Theatre Alberta of their cancellation immediately in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org
