Starting Out is the perfect introduction to the world of acting and performing, and a great place to have fun and get creative! During these sessions filled with fun and exhilarating creative play our professional tutors lead participants on a journey of discovery covering the fundamentals of contemporary performance technique including acting, storytelling and stagecraft, and help them develop the confidence, stamina and creative imagination every young actor needs.

In Term 4, the young artists from all studioQ courses come together to present their End of Year Showcase on the Q Theatre stage at The Joan. It’s a wonderful opportunity for parents, supporters and the young artists’ peers to see the range of talents and skills the participants have to show and a time to wrap 2017 together. Tickets go on sale this November – watch this space for details!

Course fees: $195 per term
