FUN, PRODUCTION-BASED DRAMA COURSES
Welcome! My name is Kirsty and I’m the founder of Budding Theatre. I grew up in the UK performing in a theatre company much like this one, so I know first-hand how drama can build confidence, create friendships and enrich life. Established in 2014, Budding Theatre offers production-focused drama classes and themed holiday programs for children and teens. We also produce several shows a year with opportunities for actors of all ages. Our core values are PERFORM - INSPIRE - GROW, reflecting our emphasis on performance skills, inspirational experiences and personal growth. Please enjoy exploring the site and I look forward to welcoming you to the company.
At Budding Theatre, drama programs don’t just develop a young person’s performance skills, but support their development and growth holistically in a range of areas.
"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
“This made my daughter ...brave! From a quiet child who doesn’t like talking to new people or speaking in front of stranger to saying line on her own without any one else on stage was a first! One in a long line of firsts as she continues to develop skills enabling her to really take her own kind of spotlight as she returns each holidays to learn with a smile on her face and love in her heart. Thank you.”
- Lani, Royalla
"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 and the experience has strengthened their love of this art form. Kirsty Budding is an inspiring and empowering teacher!”
- Kirsty Hollow, Wanniassa
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.
- Bridget Johnson, Kaleen
"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
“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.”
- Breanna Kelly, age 14
“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.”
- Ella Buckley, age 16
“Being given the opportunity to perform in these shows has 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.”
