Advanced Acting Classes: The Play

What you'll learn

Learn how to perform a full length play with our acting short courses in Sydney!

Sydney Community College is proud to present this acting course in partnership with Darlo Drama.

The Play is an acting class in Sydney where you will discover the thrill of performing a full length play, taking a script from page to stage!

The focus of this course, is the rehearsal and performance of a contemporary theatre production, staged in the Darlo Drama Theatre across a season of three performances!

The Play is open to actors who have completed Levels One, Two & Three at Darlo Drama or similar courses elsewhere, this course will ask new things of you as an actor and will challenge you in wonderful and empowering ways.

You will gain a fundamental understanding and experience of the processes involved in staging an entire play, from rehearsal & interpretation to performance.

Working as an ensemble, blocking & script analysis is also developed in this course under the guidance of your Industry relevant Director. Our directors are all trained actors and have been teaching and directing in Sydney for longer than we can remember so you will be guided through the process under a wealth of knowledge!

The three performance structure of this course provides essential learning and experience around the development of your individual performance craft over multiple shows in front of audience. This course can be repeated as each new play uses different scripts, each with their unique challenges and learning opportunities.
