The Principal, Lyn Kidd, has been teaching Acting Technique and Voice Production for over 35 years. Lyn first trained as an A.M.E.B. Speech and Drama teacher then continued her studies under Jone Winchester and Brian Syron in the Stella Adler Technique. This was followed by intensive studies under Rae Allan, Bibi Beech, Yevgeny Lanskoy and Rowena Balos.
From these deep foundations Lyn developed a core stream of acting technique. The technique addresses the craft on the emotional, mental, vocal and physical levels necessary for truthful and engaging work.
The Film and Television content of the training is delivered via weekly camera classes, throughout the two year period. The successive competencies prepare and skill the actor in the technical nature of the medium. Students apply ongoing technique skills with the practicalities and nuances of their camera work.
The Theatre program is a broad based exploration of the theatrical form. The theatre program is continually evaluated on the premise of defining contemporary relevance and application. The theatre program reflects the practical nature of the curriculum through in-house performances at the end of each training term.
