Starting Out: Ages 5 - 8

STARTING OUT is the perfect introduction to the world of acting and performing, and a great place to have fun and get creative! During these sessions filled with fun and exhilarating creative play our professional tutors lead participants on a journey of discovery covering the fundamentals of contemporary performance technique including acting, storytelling and stagecraft, and help them develop the confidence, stamina and creative imagination every young actor needs.

At the end of Semester 2 our young artists present a Studio Q Showcase. Here all participants share theatre exercises and activities they have been working on with their peers, family and friends. This is a free event we look forward to seeing you here!
