About ArtSMART

The Hamilton Wentworth District School Board (HWDSB) in partnership with Theatre Ancaster is undertaking its ninth major musical theatre production from February to June 2017. This project is part of the HWDSB's vision for a secondary school component of ArtSMART - a focus on arts education in schools.

This program is open to all Hamilton area high school students. For further information, e-mail

This program is for singers, actors, dancers, instrumentalists and students interested in technical theatre (set, lights, sound, costume, etc.). In addition to the intense study of music, dance, and/or theatre, students work with Theatre Ancaster personnel as co-op education employers to produce a full Broadway Musical to be showcased to both student and general audiences in May and June.

ArtSMART has eight successful productions to its credit since the program was instituted by the HWDSB in partnership with Theatre Ancaster:  Into the Woods in 2009, Seussical The Musical in 2010, Once Upon A Mattress in 2011, Beauty and the Beast in 2012, The Wiz in 2013, Shrek in 2014, Oliver! in 2015, and The Wizard of Oz in 2016, which have played to more than 50,000 students from schools within the Hamilton Wentworth District School Board.

After a comprehensive selection process, Sir Allan MacNab Secondary School has taken over the ArtSMART program, including the SHSM. The Program of Choice in the performing arts focuses on instrumental and vocal music, drama, and dance. It allows students who wish to pursue a career in related fields an opportunity to focus on the arts while getting a high school diploma.

For more information, call Sir Allan MacNab Secondary School 905-383-3337 and talk with one of the originators of the program: Janice Reese who heads the vocal music side of the program.
