Sydney Theatre School Helps Aspiring Actors Become Real Stars


SYDNEY, Australia December, 2011 – Finished school and looking to take the next step in your acting career?  Concerned that you may not make the cut at NIDA or VCA? There is an alternative acting school for Aussie hopefuls and they’ve got the international stars to prove it. Sydney Theatre School offers a unique alternative – aspiring actors go through production-based training where they learn mainly by rehearsing and performing in front of an audience.
Mark Matthews, Sydney Theatre School Managing Director and Course Director reveals, “The theatre we perform our shows in (The Figtree Theatre) is the former NIDA and Old Tote Theatre (now the Sydney Theatre Company) where the likes of Mel Gibson; Judy Davis; Steve Bisley; John Bell; Robin Nevin; Jacqui Weaver and many others started their careers. The venue has great historical value to the Sydney Theatre community and our students are privileged to follow in the footsteps of these great performers.”
Australian acting schools like NIDA and VCA offer conservatory-based training and require students to go through a rigorous admissions process where only a handful get in. Out of the 2000 students who audition for NIDA, only 15 are accepted. This means that Australia’s acting schools are not meeting the needs of aspiring Aussie actors. Sydney Theatre School provides a welcome alternative that cultivates an environment of creativity based on natural skills and talents.
“I have learnt so much this year and my confidence has grown. As someone coming back into theatre it was a great course for polishing old skills but also learning new ones and taking things to the next level.”  Lyndal Judges.
