Notable thespians like Raymond Bouchard (1970), Isabelle Blais (1997), Sophie Cadieux (2001), Catherine Trudeau (1999) and Jean-François Casabonne (1988) have all roamed the Conservatoire’s halls.

Candidates must present two solo three-minute scenes (with readers) or two conjoined scenes totaling five minutes. The selection process consists of a series of two auditions, a boot camp and a final audition.
