Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre: Classes & Holiday Programs

The Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre (The Joan) is western Sydney's creative hub. Every year more than 300,000 people - many of them young families - visit The Joan for shows, courses, music lessons and drama workshops.

StudioQ is Q Theatre’s training program for young people (ages 5-18) and people living with a disability. Participants will be considered a ‘young artist’ preparing for rehearsals and performances, led by a tutor who is actively involved in the theatre industry.

Starting Out (5-8yrs)
In these sessions filled with fun exercises and creative play our professional tutors lead participants on a journey exploring the fundamentals of acting, storytelling, voice and movement.

Stepping Up (9-12yrs)
Flex your creative muscles and explore your love of performing in a fun and supportive environment where the focus is on acting and improvisation skills.

Ignite (13-15yrs)
Ignite provides the perfect environment to discover your own creative voice. Participants explore more advanced concepts of acting theory, practice their improvisational skills, learn about different performance disciplines and create their own performance works.

Accelerate (16-18yrs)
Accelerate gives students the confidence and skills needed to take their creative ideas to the marketplace and is the perfect complement to HSC Drama studies or preparation for tertiary performance training.

Access Ensemble: Performing Arts for People with a Disability
The Access Ensemble is designed for teens and adults with mild/moderate physical and intellectual disabilities to express their creativity through acting, music and movement.
