Drama at SEA is a highly interactive exploration of performance and performance styles allowing students to learn and develop into today’s actors. Sessions encourage participants to further their skills and confidence through development of the “actor’s tools,” voice, body and mind.
For the entry level sessions (Little Actors Club, Actors Club) we utilise theatre games and storytelling to bring out skills in characterisation, vocalisation and improvisation. Students will experience small ensemble/group work (3-5 members), single and multi-prop work, working with a small set, script work and character development. Members will learn valuable skills and performance techniques including interacting with audience, miming skills, stage presence and stage craft.
Actors have the opportunity to move into more challenging acting sessions as they develop their skills.
Senior actors are invited into our Theatre Ensemble group providing opportunities for participation in live performance events at SEA and in the broader community. During sessions, students will learn the following; creating different styles of plays/acts; learn and develop monologues; work in small and large ensembles; increase their stage craft; develop an ability to express personal identity, explore pertinent issues though a character or as self; street theatre/flash mob; devising characters that will draw an audience in unusual settings.
Members are welcome to enrol in any number of workshops suited to their age; payment for these workshops is due at the first lesson. Workshops generally start the second week of the school term.
We also run holiday workshop and short term intensive classes which are widely popular for our school age participants.
