Theatre Production Arts Courses

Off the Wall Stratford Artist Alliance offers backstage courses to theatre enthusiasts of all ages. Our goal is to mentor and inspire the next generation of production artists for theatres across the Province. 

Each summer and fall, professional backstage artisans -- most from the Stratford Festival – pass along their considerable skills, experience and passion for live theatre in a series of one-week specialty courses. Off the Wall participants learn a variety of theatre production skills – from specialty make-up, wig making and millinery, to artistic welding, prop building and scenic art. Our intensive, hands-on courses equip learners for volunteer work in community theatres, employment or apprenticeships in professional theatres, or specializations at the university level.
