Arts Alive Drama Workshops

The Arts Alive Drama Workshops program replaces the Arts Alive Stage 5 Drama Camp for 2021. Following the workshops, students will be invited to perform at the Arts Alive Drama Festival.

This 3-day workshop program is open to NSW public school students in Years 9 and 10 with an interest in drama.

This program is an excellent opportunity for drama students to extend their skills in a supportive environment of like-minded peers and staff, and the opportunity to learn from professional actors and experienced teachers. 

Students participate in workshops focusing on skill development in different areas of the drama syllabus, including play building, performance skills and improvisation. Students will also have the chance to watch a performance by visiting actors. 

The operation of this program is contingent on advice provided by the NSW Department of Education in consultation with NSW Health. All activities will adhere to the DoE COVID-19 guidelines and restrictions.
