The curtain is up on a new, independent, and privately run, acting course. Respected professionals Sara Wiseman, Michael Hurst, Jennifer Ward-Lealand, Michele Hine, Cameron Rhodes, John Callen and Charlie McDermott lead a rigorous, practice-based year-long course aimed at developing and deepening skills specifically for stage and screen.
The Actors’ Program concentrates on providing actors with the tools they need to be effective practitioners in the challenging and exciting world of stage and screen. The course is unique in its approach to actor training in New Zealand:
A maximum of 16 students are selected each year with a minimum age of 20 years. Selection is on the basis of talent and potential. Successful applicants must have the maturity and emotional capacity to cope with the demands of intensive training, and the potential to succeed as professional actors.
