The aim of the Studio is to provide the skills necessary to give students the opportunity to advance into a professional career should they wish to do so whilst at the same time allowing them to develop their independent skills and self confidence. From time to time we will be offering classes in Makeup, Musical Theatre (see below), and Production areas as well.
Acting skills are taught using the Spolin method incorporating “theatre games” and the groups work towards a performance twice yearly.
Students also study and learn texts and time is also spent helping to develop characterisation skills.
Independence and self confidence are developed and fostered, whilst also providing all the necessary skills and disciplines to provide a stepping stone to a professional career.
Some opportunities may arise during the year for performances at Community events.
Private classes are also available to assist with an audition or screen test or to just provide an intensive one on one learning experience.
MUSICAL THEATRE CLASSES
By popular demand, we are introducing a 2 hour per week session focussing on Musical Theatre technique. The class will include acting, singing, and dancing with specialist teachers throughout the term. The class will be working towards performances twice yearly and the focus is on ensemble work. This class is currently aimed at students from 8-12 years of age.
Makeup and Specialist workshops on technical theatre and production areas will be conducted from time to time and visiting specialists will attend.
