What makes Matrix School of Theatre so UNIQUE?


We focus on the development and empowerment of all people through Theatre!

More than a final performance, our classes focus on the following tenants:

Self-Exploration & Self Confidence

  • Students express themselves through exploratory activities

  • Students create original work based on their interests, thereby allowing students the freedom and space to develop and share their individual opinions and voices

  • Students practice and perform in front of others

  • Students develop literacy skills through playwrighting and free writing exercises


  • Students engage in partner and group work to build plays and performance pieces

  • Students build relationships with students they may have never met outside of Matrix

Social Justice

  • Students examine their communities and their role within them

  • Students become advocates for change
