18-26 Professional Series

The Professional Series is aimed to give emerging young performers (aged 18-26) the chance to work with some of Australia’s leading theatre practitioners over an intensive weekend course. Get an understanding of what professional artists expect, see how they work and the techniques they use to give the best performance possible. These courses provide you the opportunity to ask questions on approaches to staging, script work, acting techniques and theatre philosophies.
