What Parents are Saying about CTORA Academy


Our family has been blown away by the high-quality programs at CTORA Academy. The production value, the talent of the young actors, and the selection of shows are all outstanding. It's clear there's a real dedication to not just teaching theatre but also showcasing it at its best. Every program we've attended has been touching, fun, and a high-level performance that truly captivates the audience. Strongly recommended.


CTORA's learning environment is incredibly friendly and inclusive, making my child feel accepted and valued. I recommend it to any parent.


CTORA is a wonderful organization that encourages children to be creative. My daughter auditioned for a production, with no prior musical theatre experience. I love the fact that children don’t need a professional resume or headshot to be considered. We have been involved in three productions and enjoying every aspect of the company. My daughter has grown as an actor and can’t wait to attend practices. She is looking forward to being a part of next production.


I would highly recommend CTORA for any child. Not only are the shows very high in caliber with incredible production / directing / choreography teams, but CTORA fosters a sense of community and family among the parents and children. My daughter has made some life long friendships while developing her confidence and skills on stage. We are grateful for the opportunities provided and my daughter looks forward to the possibility of being on stage again with this amazing company!



Classes are every Saturday. The first program runs from April 6 to May 4. The second program is May 18 to June 15 Send us an email for registration details.
