Tim Bray Productions’ Youth Theatre classes offer a fun and varied programme where students can develop their creativity, performance techniques and confidence.

The creative talents of students are nurtured in order for them to grow as actors and as communicators.

Led by Tutors Rachael Constantine, Marlon Eraso Ortiz and Assistant Tutor Rebecca Stubbing, this programme also invites guest teachers from the theatre industry to introduce specific skills to students.

Students attend a final rehearsal of the latest Tim Bray Productions show to gain valuable insight into the staging of live theatre and see the skills they've learnt being practiced professionally. In 2018, student presentations to family and friends take place at the end of Terms 2 and 4.
