1. Outer Space for Grades K-2 (7 April, 9am-3pm)

Have you ever looked up at the sky and dreamt of a world where you lived amongst the stars? What would it be like to float around in zero gravity, to fly a rocket, to walk on the moon? Would you be all alone up there or would you soon find signs of extraterrestrial life? Would those life forms be friends, or foe? Join Lucy & Emma for a day of outer space adventure where you’ll create your own mini play and live out your best astronaut fantasy.

Skills You’ll Develop:

  • Creative play

  • Spontaneity

  • Social and communication skills

  • Confidence and self-expression

  • World and story building

2. The Science Experiment for Grades 3-6 (9 April, 9am-3pm)

Whatever you do, don’t touch that beaker. You see it? Next to those test tubes and the bunsen burner there, filled with a strange purple liquid that seems to be moving all on its own. I repeat. Do not touch it. And for your own sake, you better go put on your lab coat and safety goggles! These holidays we are bringing together students in grades 3-6 for a day of improv and devising. Step into the science lab with us and get experimental these holidays (safety equipment not included, so bring your imaginations!).

Skills you’ll develop:

  • Understanding story structure

  • Devising

  • Teamwork and collaboration

  • Performance skills

  • Improvisation

3. Scene Study for Grades 7-9 (10 April, 10am-4pm)

This 1 day workshop is for students who love getting up on the floor and performing text. Together we will go through the “page to stage” process using classic Australian texts, and develop acting technique with the help of leading theorist’s techniques such as Stanislavski, Lecoq and Meisner. The day will culminate in a final performance in front of peers.

Skills you’ll develop:

  • Script analysis

  • Acting technique with an introduction to prominent theorists

  • Rehearsal skills

  • Collaboration in small groups

  • Performance skills

4. Monologue Masterclass for Grades 10-12 (13 April, 10am-4pm)

Every working actor needs a monologue (or 2!) up their sleeve to wow a panel at drama school auditions, school exams and within the professional industry. This one day intensive is for our upper school students interested in developing and polishing monologues to have ready to go in their audition kit. Together we will take monologues from page to stage, starting with script analysis and ending in a final performance.

Skills you’ll develop:

  • Acting technique exploring prominent theorists

  • Workshopping text on the rehearsal room floor

  • Breaking down a text

  • Taking and adapting to direction

  • Engaging an audience

See you in the classroom!
