Term 4, 2019: NIDA Insta-Theatre
Join an ‘instant’ theatre company and get a taste of what NIDA has to offer.

Show your scene work as a company in a workshop presentation for family and friends at the end of the course.
Text analysis: Interpret and bring to life through the application of acting technique a short written text for live performance.
