Start of Term 3 News
Term 3 Starting Soon!
Term 3 at Action Drama Studio will have an extra focus on Film and TV acting techniques in the first 5 weeks of term. Children and teenagers will be creating and performing movie scenes and working on Film and TV scripts. In the second half of term we will make a start on preparing for Term 4 productions.
July Holiday Program
As per usual, there will be two workshops on offer in the holidays.
Primary workshop for ages 7-11
The primary workshop will give children the opportunity to act to camera, to create their own scenes and also work from a script. Amy and Simon, our very popular drama teachers will be running this workshop.
Youth workshop for ages 12-17
Following the success of our last Youth workshop, Jeremy Kewley will once again be running the Youth workshop, supported by Amy. The workshop will focus on working in the Film and TV industry and the different types of acting styles to suit different acting briefs e.g. commercials, TV series, films.

Bring a Friend Day
It is always ‘Bring A Friend’ day in week 3 of term. On Bring a friend day, students are able to bring a friend for one free lesson. Bring a Friend Day is an opportunity for students to have fun at drama with a friend of their choice. This friend should be in the right age range for the class and someone who has not been to ADS drama classes before.
If your child has a friend who has an interest in drama and would like to give it a try at another time during the term, please email or phone Suzanne to arrange.
The musical theatre class at Briar Hill has kicked off well with a group of students who have been happily singing, dancing and acting the term away. The age range of the group is 10-13 years and the class takes place Thursdays 5:00-6:30pm. If there is sufficient interest we will also be starting a musical theatre class in Watsonia and Fitzroy - both classes on Saturday mornings. Let Suzanne know if your child has any interest in joining one of these classes.
3 week trials are available at these classes. That is, pay for two classes and receive a third class free.
Please see the locations page for more details:
Why should kids have all the fun? Have you considered giving acting a go? Our adult classes are designed for beginners to intermediate level. The classes cater for adult students who are interested in acting for personal development, for career or just for fun. Our classes have a whole range of ages represented. We now have classes on offer in North Carlton, Ivanhoe, Box Hill and Hawthorn.
