ADULT ACTING & CASTING COURSE FOR BEGINNERS  ( 10 hours)

Did you know our training centre is a well known casting suite for theatre and film productions and used by many companies to find actors/performers each week

Did you know that a number of our  students with no previous acting skills have been cast in professional theatre, film and TV productions as they have been spotted by our casting director while in training. 

We have decided to do a special 2 day intense course which will give you the skills to  act and do well at castings for both theatre and TV.

THORNY QUESTIONS  

Helen Thorn (one half of the UK's comedy duo The Scummy Mummies) is approaching 40 – she’s overweight, has a hairy body and really enjoys eating gluten. But she couldn’t be happier, so why is the rest of the world telling her she’s wrong? In this bold and brash show, this big-boned woman tackles the big issues facing the big bad world today. Why are we obsessed with waxing our front bottoms? Why is everyone wearing sporty leggings in cafes? And why the f*%k are we taking photos of our food? 


Come see Helen's brand new show before she takes it to the Melbourne Comedy Festival.
