ACADEMY PLUS – Theatre Workshop for Adults

Interested in acting? Want to brush up your skills? Stage Door launch Academy Plus.

As a result of demand, the Stage Door Theatre Company is launching a theatre experience for adults. Known as Academy Plus, it features classes by experts in acting, character, improvisation, stage movement, microphone technique, stage make-up and more.

The first of these takes place the weekend of September 14 and 15 from 10am to 4pm at Northtec, Kerikeri. Fee is $100 for the two days.

Following the outstanding successes of Shrek the Musical and Calendar Girls, we have had interest from more adults who haven’t been on stage since school, or who never have been, but who now want to be involved in our sort of community theatre here. This is for them and for our existing adult ensemble. It’s going to be a fun learning experience.
