TAPAC class

A course designed to hone the performance skills of adult actors and develop the voice, body and habits of a professional performer.

You can sign up for any term, but each session builds upon the previous one. The first term, "The Actor's Toolbox" is designed to help you develop the voice, body and habits of a professional performer.

The second term, "Modern Times" focuses on modern acting styles for both stage and screen and includes special sections on auditioning and voice acting.

Term three, "Learning from the Masters" will allow you to approach Shakespeare without fear! We work on how to break down classical text, bring it to life and make it your own.

Term four, "Putting It Together" builds on the previous terms and culminates in a performance night at TAPAC.
