Acting at Darlo Drama: The Scene

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

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

This 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.

Level 2 culminates in an evening performance on Darlo Drama’s Studio Theatre stage!
