All classes are conducted in the Prospect Playhouse classroom - upstairs - classes are private to tutor and students. Parents or guardians must drop-off the students and either return for them at the end of the allotted class or wait in their cars. It is not possible to allow unsupervised access to any other part of the theatre. You are welcome to sit at our picnic tables outside. We ask that all students come in appropriate clothing and footwear for moving around in, and that they bring plenty of water.

The beginners course is run once a year and is a weekly class with a different topic each week to build up a
knowledge and understanding of stage craft and performance skills. With each topic comes new challenges and these are building blocks towards improved abilities and confidence. This course is a stand-alone course which is a great introduction to acting, or refresher for actors who already have some knowledge and want to hone their skills. At any time this is not running, all beginners are welcome to join our training class which is tailored to individual needs.
Acting – Mini group: 5-7 yrs 3.30-4.30pm $140 **This class has the focus on play and storytelling.

They will be asked to explore their imagination with an aim to develop confidence alongside skills. This can eventually lead to the creation of their own work and some small performances.**
Acting – Junior group: 8-11 yrs 4.30-6pm $235 **This class moves into exploration of character, improvisation and devising their own pieces.
