Perform Australia – School Holiday Drama Program
Looking for something fun to do in the hols? Try drama! We have some fantastic programs in acting and filmmaking. Whether you’re new to acting or an old hand, there’s bound to be something to interest you!
Do-It-Yourself Fantasy and Fairytales
Goblins, beanstalks, wolves and witches… not every character in a fairytale is a princess or a fairy! Some are sinister and creepy, while others are absolute heroes. But all are built around key character types that not only appear in fantasy, but are in just about every other story out there, in one form or another. So if you want to be an actor, you need to meet and master these character types! In this three-day workshop, you’ll learn acting skills such as:
- using scripts
- devising characters
- creating stories
- performing on stage (stagecraft)
Not only that, you’ll get to perform for family and friends on the last day in our amazing theatre!
WHEN: 9am-3pm, Monday 12 April to Wednesday 14 April, inclusive
FOR: Ages 7-12
WHERE: Perform Australia studios, 11 Whyalla St, Fyshwick
Hollywood Highlights Film Acting Workshop
Want to be in a movie? In this workshop for teens, you’ll learn key skills in acting for the camera by recreating scenes from classic Hollywood movies. Learn about:
- acting technique: some key skills around looking at a script and working out how to play your character
- the differences between acting for stage and acting for screen – how to adapt your performance to the demands of the camera
- the screen environment: who’s on a set, and what they do to help make the film

You’ll even get a copy of the scene you act in, to keep forever!
