   Covid-19 Policy:



As a private company, requiring proof of vaccination is the best way for us to manage risk as the 6th wave of Covid-19 arrives. Since masks are not required during the workshop and instructors as well as their spouses are elderly, we will require all students to be vaccinated for all currently scheduled workshops. After the summer, prior to the start of fall workshops, we will re-evaluate our policy based on statistics and protective measures put in place.

   The Clown and Comedy School is now reopened



New administration

The workshops have resumed since November with
Francine Côté assisted by Jean Saucier, the new director.


Francine Côté, James Keylon and now Jean Saucier offer targeted services in Creation and Masterclass, Directing, Acting Coaching, Scriptwriting and Masterclasses in Clowning
(Character Research and Partnership Dynamics), Slapstick, Mime and Physical Theatre.

After more than 200 acts and fifty co-created shows, Francine Côté, James Keylon and now Jean Saucier offer an expertise in creation, which combines their respective specialties: the dramatic design of their characters, the relationship between partners and/or the public, the staging and the structure of the script.
