This course is specifically designed for our Senior Hunter Drama students (16yrs and over) who are self-motivated professional actors who wish to put in the time to become masters of their craft. Entry is via audition only.

Students taking this course are given access to a series of unique workshops that are delivered at a high level. These workshops have a process based focus and explore new ways of creating meaning and truth through performance using rigorous physical and vocal experiences.The course has a strong focus on encouraging students to explore their own personalities and personal limitations as an actor. Actors Company 2019 will also undertake extra performing opportunities in addition to the two WOWFest schedules festivals.

As an Actor’s Company student, it is important to realize and be aware of our teaching practices for this course. The Actor’s Company involves teaching practices of a personal, physical or emotional nature. There may be situations which frequently require physical contact between staff and students as well as emotional interactions. The art of acting is the ability to create believable characters. The dramatic situation may require the actor to demonstrate mature themes. In directing actors, staff members encourage them to explore their own personal thoughts and feelings in order to find a reality for a character or a scene. Students are reminded that this process is an important and long-established technique to enhance creative development. It requires a level of personal maturity on the part of the student and is something that parents need to be aware of.
