The National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA)  is returning to the Sutherland Entertainment Centre for the January School holidays. This course was such a hit with both the parents and the students last school holidays that we have booked NIDA to come again this summer for one 3-day course designed for Grades 3 to 6, on Monday 21, Tuesday 22 and Wednesday 23 January.  

This is a great opportunity for local children to build skills in fundamental acting techniques including improvisation, character development and scene work. There are limited places available.

This course is open for enrolment on Friday 30 November online from 6am. Read more
