YOUTH AT ELTHAM LITTLE THEATRE

Eltham Little Theatre has a long and happy tradition of working with youth in the theatre. Since ELT’s inception in 1958 there has been a production specifically for youth performers for nearly every one of those years.

It is only in recent times that we have been able to offer any sort of theatre craft education classes on a weekend. As you may imagine, due to the volunteer nature of our organisation, lessons we are able to provide depend heavily on individual member availability each year.

If you would like to be informed of upcoming youth activities at the theatre please email our youth coordinators.

Youth Classes – General information

Our courses are run for 10 to 18 year olds with separate classes for primary and secondary students. The program explores acting and role play, script reading, monologues and audition preparation. We also look at theatre craft and the importance of staging, lighting, sound, sets, costumes, props and how these things impact an actor’s performance.

When available, classes run within the school term for an average of 7 to 8 weeks in duration. Start times and days can vary but usually classes are held on a Saturday morning between 10 and 12 depending and run for 1 hour’s duration.

Lessons will be focussed on various aspects of theatre work each term including but not limited to the following subjects:

  • audition techniques and preparation

  • theatre craft

  • script reading

  • script interpretation

  • improvisation

  • acting techniques

  • musical theatre
