8 - 12 October 2018
9AM-3PM (drop off from 8.30AM, pick up by 3.15PM)


This October holiday programme will be focused on getting physical and getting loud! Our tutor Stevie will take students through a variety of games and exercises on how to learn your lines, and how to use your voice and be heard alongside having fun performing. We guarantee a fun time will be had and the students may even go on a wee adventure around town. The week will culminate in a showing for parents and friends to see what your kids have been up to!

Adult Acting Classes

For ages 18+ • $140 • 7-9pm • 7 x 2 hour sessions


During the term we work on performance techniques such as stage presence, projection and collaboration. The goal is to inspire confidence and resilience in actors as well as have a play around and leave them with transferable skills that they can apply to their everyday lives. The term ends with a 30-45min play for friends and family that we spend the weeks rehearsing.
