PTE Theatre School and outreach director Loc Lu will also be on hand to answer questions.

Tours run at 1 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, October 1. A third tour runs at 1 p.m. on Sunday, October 2. Visitors are asked to arrive 15 minutes before the start of the tours and meet in the lobby.

PTE is located on the third floor of Portage Place.
