Prerequisite: students enrolling in this course must be committed to learning lines outside of class.

In this eight week drama course for children, students will:

  • audition for roles in Peter Pan (an amazing range of great roles!)

  • learn lines for their roles in Peter Pan

  • be directed and learn performance skills including use of stage space, expression, gesture, vocal projection, timing and characterisation

  • The course will end with a free public performance at the Canberra Theatre Centre.

This course is recommended for young drama students who want to perform in a play in which they have a named role and lines. The text used will be an original adaptation of Peter Pan specifically abridged for this age group and adapted by the tutor for the students in the course, aiming to challenge each student and encourage all students to increase their acting skills and confidence (and have fun!). Students will receive audition prep instructions after enrolment so that they can prepare for the first class.
