New Acting Training Modules at Sydney Theatre School for 2012 Students


SYDNEY, January Australia, 2012 – Sydney Theatre School has unveiled new training modules in time for its Advanced Diploma Course in 2012. The integration of the 3 new modules – acting methodologies; screen and showcase – will be launched in February 2012 and applications are now open for both new and former students of the school. Sydney Theatre School is the only acting school in Australia that offers aspiring Aussie actors a refreshing training philosophy of ‘production based’ training -  providing a welcome alternative to mainstream, theory based acting schools.

Mark Matthews, Sydney Theatre School Managing Director and Course Director says, “Around 2000 people audition for the NIDA acting course each year and only around 25 are accepted. We provide an alternative for those who are rejected by the mainstream acting schools, but who still wish to follow their dream of an acting career. Drama is a popular school subject taken by around 5,000 students in the HSC in NSW every year.”

Over the past few years, a lot of major drama schools have closed down or restructured, including Theatre Nepean at UWS and Ensemble Studios. The courses at VCA and NIDA have undergone some changes that have been criticized within the industry. NIDA has been criticized for focusing too much on film and TV acting and too little on theatre. Rather than spending 3 years training at these acting schools, students at Sydney Theatre School are fast tracking their career as they experience a boost in their confidence and acting skills from their training.

Sydney Theatre School offers production-based training that helps students develop high-level skills in acting, voice, movement, improvisation and stagecraft. They gain a practical understanding of the skills required to pursue a professional acting career as they work alongside like-minded individuals in a fun, supportive and creative environment. They also perform in three full productions directed by high-profile directors where they showcase their work to agents, directors, casting directors and producers, and network with industry professionals. Sydney Theatre School will introduce the 3 brand new modules to students when acting classes officially begin in February.
