Young Actors Studio

The STS Young Actors Studio provides drama and acting classes that are challenging, educational and enjoyable. You do not need any previous experience to take part in the program, just enthusiasm and commitment.

A range of acting techniques and theatrical forms are explored including improvisation, voice, movement, devising and working with text. Students explore themes and topics culminating in a sharing of their work to family and friends.
