What is theatre residency week?
Theatre Residency Week (TRW) is a week-long intensive theatre camp for students in years 9-12. Students live on campus at Stuartholme School in its boarding facilities and spend each day developing their acting skills, with workshops and activities. Students work towards creating a group performance for a live audience, which families and friends can come and watch on the final day. In the evening, students are engaged in an exciting social and cultural program, including excursions to see live theatre and opportunities to network with leading artists from Queensland Theatre. TRW is held each year in the September school holidays and is attended by students from all over Australia.
When and where?
Theatre Residency Week will run from 4pm, Monday 23 September – 9am, Saturday 28 September. It is held at Stuartholme School, Toowong.
How is it supervised?
In the daily workshop program, students choose core group activities to suit their interests. Each of these core groups (usually a maximum of 20 students) are facilitated by experienced Teaching Artists, carefully selected by Queensland Theatre. For their pastoral care, participants are divided into House Parent Groups of approximately 15 students. Each House Parent is experienced in working with young people and we ensure a number of House Parents have First Aid Training. All staff onsite have successfully passed a Working with Children Check by the Queensland Government. Students are supervised at all times and Queensland Theatre exercises all due care, but also requires students to act with respect and care during the week.
