Overview
More
The Young Centre for the Performing Arts was envisioned by George Brown College and Soulpepper Theatre Company to be a home to Toronto's arts community and a destination for all theatre lovers. Anchored by the presence of Soulpepper's year-round repertory season and George Brown College's Theatre School, the Young Centre provides a home for both the leading artists of today, as well as the arts leaders of tomorrow. When you step through the doors of the Young Centre you can feel a difference. The space is alive with discussion and debate. There is a kinetic energy fueled by the passion of performers, students, and audiences. There is a musical hum to designers, choreographers, directors and musicians collaborating. There is a rhythm set by the theatre, dance, music and poetry that fills each of the spaces. This is the environment in which we get to work, play, create and share. And you belong here.

We went to see Animal Farm at the Young Centre. The venue was very nice, not too big. I don't think there was a bad seat in the house. Everyone was very pleasant and the performance was spectacular.

We went here to see a fun production of Edward Albee's The Goat, which we loved. The centre is in the distillery district and is a beautiful setting for a theatre, which was intimate and had a high-quality of production.

Being in the Distillery District, a visit to the Young Centre can be an excursion of art galleries and excellent food. Then a play! Also the Centre has a wonderful Cafe with good food and libation.

Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of
