Theatre is my
The Theatre is My Passion (TIMP) children's program is an after-school program for children and youth between the ages of 8 & 18. The program runs from February to June, finishing with a full production of a play. Led by a dedicated team of volunteers, the children learn about everything that it takes to put on a production—from auditions to backstage etiquette!
