If you've ever dreamt of becoming the next Cate Blanchett or Hugh Jackman, help is at hand. The Actors’ Hub has a special one-year part-time course that aims to reduce the gap between high school drama and Australia’s leading acting schools, such as the National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA) and WA Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA) and the industry.
Known as The Gap, the program allows students to refine their skills as they learn from highly trained actors, directors and master teachers while waiting for the next annual intake for performing arts courses across the country. Applications for The Gap in 2014 are now open – entry is by audition only and people must be aged 17 and above. First round offers close December 13, 2014 and second round offers close January 17, 2015. The Actors’ Hub director Amanda Crewes said there were limited places on offer at Australia’s major drama schools, overlooking some of the country’s most talented performers.
- WHEN: Applications are open until 16 January, 2015.
- WHERE: Subiaco Arts Centre, 140 Hamersley Drive, Subiaco, Perth WA
