LEARN

THE ACTORS' PLAYGROUND

We are committed to setting each and every one one of our students on their own path to excellence. Our holistic approach to educating allows us to create safe and supportive environments for our students, allowing them to tap into their creativity, confidence and passion. We consider all factors such as age, past experience and styles of learning and communicating when teaching to ensure the best learning and development outcomes for our students. While we pride ourselves on our ability to build strong professional performers, we're also passionate about serving as a space for young people to just have fun and connect with others.

We were extremely excited to launch our Actors' Playground during the mid-year school holidays of 2022, offering children aged 7 - 16 two programs which are highly engaging, stimulating and social.

 

These workshops are designed to teach a range of technical skills in the areas of singing, dancing, acting, while encouraging our students to express themselves and to embrace their silly side.

Acting for the Screen

Three days a week for duration of school holidays.

8:30am - 3:30pm

Lights, camera, action! Through this screen acting program, our brilliant team of educators will deliver specialised training, creative techniques and valuable industry insights to our students, ensuring they feel comfortable and confident in front of the camera in a playful learning environment.

 

Students will perform scenes to be filmed and analysed in class while receiving personalised feedback. 

 

At the end of the program, students will take home a professional showreel to show their friends and family. Additionally, and with parent or guardian consent, these showreels can be distributed by us to our large network of agents, PR companies and other leading industry professionals.

 

Musical Theatre and Stage Performance

At the end of the program, students will perform in a live musical showcase to friends, family and industry professionals.
