  • To gain understanding and respect for Performing Arts as a profession

Venue – participants will be working in a large rehearsal space for the majority of the program and the Casula Powerhouse theatre for the final performance. All the technical resources of the theatre will be available for the performance – Staff, lighting and sound.

Commitment from each young person in the course to all sessions is vital for the program’s success. Collaboration and teamwork are vital to theatre companies: one or more participants missing week to week jeopardises the work for the whole group. An agreement participants will sign encourages their commitment to the full course and their role in building their skills for the future, whether in drama or in greater life.
