Learning

Theatre doesn’t grow on trees. But it grows here in Penrith.

Q Theatre‘s drop in and deep dive workshops are made for a wide range of people. We’re here for beginners hoping to learn the basics, emerging artists making the leap to professional practice and professionals wanting to stay sharp. We have weekly workshops for creative people of all ages and various needs. Below is a few of our current courses on offer.

Please Note: Studio Q classes will be proceeding in-person at The Joan in 2022. Should the current NSW Health Order change and restrict activities on site at The Joan, classes will instead be delivered online via Zoom.
