studioQ is the Q’s theatre training program
studioQ is The Q’s theatre training program for young people (ages 5-18) and people living with a disability. We believe that the best way to learn skills in theatre is to do what professional actors and directors do every day – participants will be considered a ‘young artist’ preparing for rehearsals and performances, led by a tutor who is actively involved in the theatre industry.
See below for the full range of studioQ courses available in 2018, including the course aims, schedules each term, rates, and the terms and conditions.
