Monday Night Masterclasses are back in 2017!

Monday Night Masterclasses are a series of acting workshops offered to interested high school aged participants (Year 9-12). Each Monday Night Masterclass focuses on a particular actor training style, themed around Queensland Theatre’s Mainstage productions.

Come and work with some of Queensland’s most talented and engaging professional theatre artists!

  • Learn new skills
  • Work with like-minded young people
  • Get to know Queensland Theatre
  • See amazing productions from our 2017 Mainstage season

Our first workshop programme for the year delves into the delightful world of Musical Theatre. It is facilitated by one of Queensland’s best musical theatre teachers, Cienda McNamara, and includes an excursion to see Queensland Theatre’s musical production ‘Ladies in Black’.

About the workshop:

In musical theatre, story is communicated through dialogue, music and movement as an integrated whole. During this workshop we will explore different vocal styles and techniques, acting through song, how to sell a song for an audition and a basic routine from one of Broadway's newest shows.

 If you love to use your voice, body and performance skills all at once, then musical theatre is for you!
