So, you have work or school commitments that don’t allow you to study the performing arts full time, but are keen to learn quality skills, meet great artistic people, and learn a discipline that boosts self esteem, helps you grow in confidence, and allows you to create some challenging and exciting performances? Then you have come to the right place!

Our students have lots of fun, but are disciplined and committed to learning valuable skills, working together as a team, and putting on great shows.

Our students range from the committed amateur to the passionate professional.  We teach adult students of all ages, as well as children (from 6 years) and teens. We take on new students in January (for terms 1 and 2) and in early July (for terms 3 and 4). We look for a six month commitment so that our students can bond and work on quality productions as a team.

As we are part of a production studio, we occasionally have exciting film crew, acting, extras work, and audition opportunities available for our students. Let us know if you are keen!
