Teenjur Young Critics Program

The 2020 Teenjur Program and the 2020 Toronto Fringe Festival have been cancelled due to COVID-19. Read our full statement here.

Teenjur-Young Critic Program is a free three and a half day intensive that introduces teens (aged 15-19) to theatre criticism and other youth opportunities at the Toronto Fringe Festival. We will prioritize applications from folks who identify as; IBPOC (Indigenous, Black, People of colour); LGBTQ2S; Women and non-binary people. Participants will attend Fringe shows and workshops led by Karen Fricker (Professional critic at the Toronto Star, Associate Professor at Brock University), co-facilitated by Robyn Grant-Moran, as well as youth performances at POSTSCRIPT. An honorarium will be provided on the final day for participants who attend each session in full. TTC fare will be provided each day of the workshops.  Participating teens will then present an award on Awards Night to the show that represented teens the best.

Applications for the 2021 Program will open in Spring 2021.
