Stage & Screen

Weekly Classes

Our weekly Stage & Screen classes cover essential skills and techniques for the young, budding actor. These include:

  • Character development and improvisation
  • Scene work
  • Self-tape camera skills
  • Theatre sports
  • Industry standards and information

What sets our classes apart is the emphasis on developing strong skills for stage and screen, preparing students for an industry
where versatility is crucial.

As with all of our classes, we strive to nurture the individual performer and the ensemble cast member. No term is ever the same, which is why some of our students have attended lessons for over 10 years. Class curriculum is always varied, challenging and fun!

Get started today!

Before starting weekly classes students are invited to complete the Stage & Screen Workshop. This workshop ensures that everyone commencing mainstream classes will have the foundational skills to comfortably integrate with our current students. It also allows us to get to know each student’s individual abilities.

During the Stage & Screen Workshop, actors will cover:

  • Improvisation and Theatre Sports exercises
  • Acting for Screen (Film and TV), including filming a scene with a mini-crew!
  • Filming a self-tape
  • Acting for Stage (Theatre)
  • Audition techniques
  • Special Q&A with film and TV actors who have trained at the studio!

At the conclusion of the workshop, parents are invited to a showcase of the stage pieces. You will also receive a copy of your edited scene, filmed with the professional mini-crew.

This workshop runs for 3-days in the school holidays or as 7-week program on Thursday afternoons during the term.

Actors trained in Stage & Screen at the Ali Roberts Studio.

This workshop is appropriate for students aged 9-17years old.


Q: How many students per workshop?

A: There is maximum if 12 students per teacher for this workshop. We have a maximum of two workshops running at once with one teacher per 12 students.


Q: What’s next? Weekly class timetable?

A: After the workshop, each student is invited into our weekly classes, to the options that best suit their age and ability.

You can check-out our timetable below. We do not publish these booking links on the website as not all classes are suitable for everyone – this is just a guide. We will send you days / times best suited to you once we have completed the workshop.
