Learn Acting for Beginners (Level 2) with our acting & drama short courses in Sydney!

Sydney Community College is proud to present this acting & drama course in partnership with Darlo Drama, which will extend your skills, connect to a partner and build your craft.

This acting course is an investigation into naturalistic acting & drama techniques that will make your performances more convincing.

The first few weeks are spent exploring theatre and acting techniques through drama games and improvisation exercises. Once the scripts are handed out, you will be working with a scene partner and find out what happens on stage when someone talks back.

These classes culminate in an evening performance on Darlo Drama's Studio Theatre stage!
