Term 3, 2021: Acting Shenanigans
What does it take to act comedy? Learn how to deliver comic lines, use comic timing, and highlight the comedy in your character’s story and situation.
In Term 3, you’ll identify classic comic ‘types’ and work on bringing them to life - from script to stage or screen. Not only that, you’ll work on comic physicality – because slapstick, gesture and actions are key aspects of comic delivery. Next, you’ll bring it all together in monologues and scenes, which you’ll workshop through the term and perform at an open class at the end of the term. Sounds like a hoot!
TUITION FEE: $280 per term.
Term 4, 2021: Be In A Show!
Train with us in Term 4 and be a part of our end-of-year performance!
In Term 4, our theme is ‘Brave’ - and you’ll explore bravery by playing a character role in a short script, which you’ll rehearse and polish for performance! - either in a theatre, or in an amazing livestream, depending on your location!
What does ‘brave’ mean to you? The bravery of a lion – or an explorer? The bravery of facing a bully? The bravery of true love? Whatever it is, you’ll investigate this wonderful virtue through drama, and find the strength to act!
TUITION FEE: $280 per term.
Enrolment for Term 4 now closed.
Enrolment for Term 1 2022 will open soon!
