New Part Time Drama Course at National

New Part Time Drama Course at National

The National Theatre Drama School in St Kilda has instigated a new training course for students over 17 years of age, which aims to give participants a clear understanding of the skills and disciplines required for advanced actor-training and performance-making.

Running for three seven-week terms, students spend three nights a week exploring basic Voice, Movement and Acting skills as well a range of related subjects such as Stage Combat, Singing, Text Study, Mask and Acting for Camera.

All classes are taught by practicing Industry professionals and class sizes are limited to approximately 14 per intake. There are two intakes per year (February and July) and entry is by audition.

Fees ($750 per term) are payable term by term in advance and auditions for the course are held in November and June each year.

The course is popular as it allows students who have jobs or other studies to get a taste of full-time training.

For Anna-Mai Hoek from St Kilda the course was a good first step.  “The Preparatory Course has given me confidence and direction. I can’t wait to learn more!”
