Act Lab

Intensive and Industry-Driven Acting Classes | Ages 7-18 

As Australia’s Home of Performing Arts, we have a commitment to providing true triple-threat training to our students. So, Act Lab was born; a dynamic program designed for young people with a passion for acting.

Act Lab is a fun and safe environment for young people to learn and develop as they explore the craft of acting. Supported by an unmatched faculty of real actors and directors, students are motivated and encouraged to ‘let go.’

Regardless of age and experience our aim for each Act Lab student is to;

  • Develop empathy, curiosity and passion for the craft
  • Create a life-long appreciation of text, films and theatre
  • Communicate confidently
  • Learn skills that are applicable to school and future employment – be it on the stage or in the workplace

Patrick Klavins is our Head of Acting.

As an educator, Patrick has a profound dedication and passion for performing arts education in Australia. His specialist areas include acting technique, text analysis, Shakespearean verse, scene study, and audition technique.  Patrick considers it a great privilege to be supporting students as they strive for excellence in the performing arts.
