Melbourne Comedy Festival Performance Course
Drama With A Difference is one of Australia's leading, independent drama schools.
With a history that spans more than twenty years, it is the launching pad of many successful Australian actors; most of whom were first spotted through public performances run through our school. We have a strong connection with the professional entertainment industry.
The drama school is running its regular Performance Course, starting at the beginning of February, 2017. The course is open to adults with and without experience.
The course teaches the technique of acting, and students apply this technique to a scene (or scenes) for performance in The Melbourne Comedy Festival; all participants will perform in two shows at our intimate, 40 seat theatre. We enter the Melbourne International Comedy Festival as a Recreational Adult Drama Group so there is no need to be afraid if you have not performed before! Indeed, many people join this course to overcome their fear of speaking / acting in front of others.
We structure the course in such a way that it can integrate the needs of those who wish to become actors, as well as those who are interested in the course for purely recreational purposes. The school is very experienced in producing shows with its students for inclusion in theatre festivals. Since 2009, we have entered students' shows in The Melbourne International Comedy Festival and The Melbourne Fringe Festival.
Students will meet at our venue in CLIFTON HILL on MONDAY nights from 7.30-9.45pm, for a period of approximately nine weeks; after which there are two technical rehearsals at our theatre in Kew, followed by the performances.
Numbers are limited to 18 people, and this is always a very popular course, so early booking is advised.
Please note that there is break over Easter in the dates and times period. (ie; You will have the Easter weekend completely free, along with all public holidays)
