Access Ensemble:
For Ages 18 - 26 and 26+
Living with Disability

OUR ACCESS ENSEMBLE performing arts courses are designed specifically to cater for people with mild to moderate physical and/or intellectual disabilities. No experience is required and we are delighted to welcome new artists to join our returning students in our Access Ensembles. Our students regularly tell us that they love coming to Studio Q, because:

  • Our tutors are professional teaching artists who are eager to help them get what they want out of the course;
  • They get to perform in a state-of-the-art theatre in front of a general public audience;
  • They gain skills, confidence and experience in a professional theatre environment; and
  • They meet exciting new people, and make great friends. Experience all the thrills and creative challenges of acting and live performance.

Each week our Access Ensemble participate in acting, music and movement exercises designed to stimulate the creative imagination and develop skills in personal and creative self expression. The two onsite courses include:

  • Adult Ensemble, that takes place in the mornings and is designed for ages 26+
  • Young Adults Ensemble, which runs in the afternoon for emerging artists aged 18 – 26

Term 4 provides students time to develop and present a performance of their theatre skills to the public. Please see below for details on the 2020 Showcase.
