New Young Reviewers Program

The New Young Reviewers program, supported by the Jon Kaplan Legacy Fund, is a FREE workshop series and writing group for 10 emerging theatre and performance reviewers ages 15 and up.

In partnership with Intermission magazine, New Young Reviewers is led by Signy Lynch (Contemporary Theatre Review, Canadian Theatre Review, Intermission Magazine) and Stephanie Fung (Kingston Theatre Alliance, Canadian Theatre Review, Single Thread Theatre). The program will focus on introducing participants to the basics of theatre reviewing and help them develop responses to Toronto Fringe performances. It will also encourage participants to explore new, creative approaches to criticism that are emerging in the field, and to begin to define themselves as critics and reviewers.

The 2024 program begins June 9th! Apply to be part of the program here!

Deadline: May 20th, 2024 by 11:59pm
