Years 10–12 Ensembles

A weekly program to initiate a pathway to professional creative practice.

About The Ensembles

Young people in school Years 10–12 delve deep into the theatrical process to hone their craft, expand their understanding of theatre making and establish their practice as emerging theatre makers.

Run on a semester basis, young artists work with a professional Workshop Artist on a weekly program that concludes with an end of semester performance for family and friends.

  • Ideal for dedicated drama students.
  • Explore sophisticated theatre making techniques.
  • Practice new acting methodologies each week.
  • Refine personal creative practice.
  • Sharpen skills in acting, devising, voice work, script analysis and stagecraft.
  • Work with monologues and scenes from plays.
  • Collaborate to devise an original piece of theatre.
  • Perform for family and friends at the end of semester.

Our Ensembles are delivered in line with government social distancing requirements and our COVIDsafe plan.

Enrolments are open until week 3 each semester.

Enrolments for our Ensembles are on a semester basis.
