School Hoilday Programs

Each school holidays the Australian Shakespeare Company holds drama workshops for Melbourne’s budding young performers.

Every school holidays students aged 8 – 17 can enjoy a fun filled week working on and playing with Shakespeare and other texts. Run by professional Australian Shakespeare Company actors and directors, these action packed drama workshops are comprised of character work, unlocking text, exploring the world of the play, improvisation, clowning and stage combat with plenty of games thrown into the mix!

These summer holidays, participants will get to know all the crazy characters and interlinking worlds from Shakespeare’s magical comedy, ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’

Enrolments close the Thursday prior to the start of each program.

“I just love the language. I also love learning about the plays and having to learn lines. The tutors just make it so fun!”.

Darcy - Aged 11

“The plays are so different. Some are a bit the same, but each one is so unique. I love that the language is so different to now days. It’s so good to know why it’s important.”

“I love the big range Shakespeare has! Comedies! Tragedies! These classes keep life in the plays and makes Shakespeare really fun!”
