Highlands Theatre Group is proud to present a new bespoke training course for locals interested in dipping their toes into the world of acting and performance. We have been lucky enough to secure the exceptional talent that is renowned actor and performance educator Antoinette Sampson, for a six-week acting intensive course.

For six weeks in term two, Highlanders will have the unique opportunity to tap into Antoinette’s deep understanding of the craft and tap into the Fundamentals of Acting. The course will focus on the four core principles of acting: Character Development and Personalisation (Who am I?); Given Circumstances (Where am I? When am I?); Super Objective and Objective (What do I want?); and Status and Action (How do I get what I want?). This will culminate with a performance workshop to showcase what you’ve learned to friends and family.


Wednesday Nights - 6:45pm to 9:00pm; Commencing 22nd May to 26th June 2024

Sunday 30th June 2024 - Showcase for family and friends

Members: $100

Non-Members: $120 (includes 2024 HTG Membership)
