Full Day Program

Second City’s award-winning School Programs provide engaging and fully interactive workshops and performances for students of all ages. Our unique brand of experiential learning makes our programs an exciting educational event for students.

Every year we welcome hundreds of elementary and secondary schools from throughout the GTA, southern Ontario, and beyond. All of our performances and workshops are developed using the Ministry of Education’s current curriculum. More information about the curriculum links to our programming can be found HERE.

We look forward to welcoming ESL students, students on the spectrum, and those with other learning needs, who greatly benefit from our supportive and encouraging environment.

Performance/Workshop Combo – best value at $35 per student, HST included

Workshop Only – $20 per student, HST included

About the show:

This year’s Second City Education Program is doubling down on our “Yes And” philosophy. For 60 years we have been sharing our approach to: creative collaboration, effective listening, diversity and inclusion. Our 2019/20 Education show “We WOKE Up Like This” is an interactive fast-paced Improv show with our core values on full display. The performance is followed by the cast delivering some curriculum based improv exercises that bring experiential learning to another level. Students will come away from this full day visit feeling empowered and inspired to tell their own story.


About the workshops:

Workshops run 90 minutes for grades 1-8, and 2 hours for grades 9-12. Workshops can be conducted in English or French and can be adjusted to any age or experience level. A list of workshops provided can be found HERE
