Testimonials

"Both my kids attended and loved everything about it. My 6 year old son was the real surprise with how much he enjoyed it… [My daughter] - she’d come home just bubbling over with excitement from the day! This was her second program and she'd like to attend again."

- Sam, Chapman

"My child loved the final performance and all the rehearsing they did leading up to it. He enjoyed the variety of activities he got to do e.g. singing, dancing and acting. He also liked the chance to make some new friends."

- Neill, Evatt

*****

"Both my children loved their first Budding Theatre holiday program. The activities and guidance with the children helped them go through the stages of group formation and performance, despite different personalities and ideas. The class size was perfect."

- Stef, O'Malley

My two teenagers have been participating in Budding Theatre courses and shows for the past year and have enjoyed every moment. They have learned much about theatre and the experience has only strengthened their love of this art form. Kirsty Budding is an inspiring and empowering teacher!

My son and daughter both attended the Heroes and Villains holiday program and thoroughly enjoyed it. The program gave them a full week of fun drama antics and culminated with a terrific show for parents to watch. Awesome holiday program and with longer days than many holiday courses, it’s good for working parents too.

“I have been performing with Budding Theatre for 4 years this year and I love it so much. When I started I had little to no performance experience and was very shy. I have now developed my skills and made friends I’ll have for a long time. Kirsty writes excellent plays and is always producing exciting new content.

“Budding Theatre is a fantastic company that offers so many wonderful opportunities to youth and adults. My first production with BT was Little Women, and it was an amazing opportunity and taught me many things.”

“Being given the opportunity to perform in these shows have been life changing for me. I am without a doubt going to continue working with Budding Theatre again in the future, I have learned so much from everyone there.”

*****

I owe so much to Budding Theatre, and more specifically to Kirsty. She gave me my first glimpse of theatre outside of school with The Night Before Christmas in 2016, and since then I have performed in a variety of shows with the company. Kirsty also gave me the opportunity to direct a youth production which has inspired me to follow that dream. Budding Theatre is a place where creatives/performers of all ages and experience levels can develop their skills and perform. Everyone is part of the family at Budding Theatre.

There are also plenty of opportunities for performers to learn about other areas of theatre such as backstage.
