ZigZag Theatre run a range of workshops in the school holidays. Our Holiday Workshops are a place for young people (whether you are a current ZigZag Theatre member or not!) to come together, delve deep into the imagination and develop fundamental performance skills in a safe, supportive environment – all whilst having heaps of fun!

 Our Secondary holiday workshops offer specialised intensives in a particular area allowing young people to develop their technique and performance skills in areas such as physical theatre, clowning, screen acting,  audition technique, contemporary performance, devising theatre, improvisation and much more!


Are you looking for a fun and creative way to spend your holiday? Look no further than our Acting Essentials holiday workshop designed for grades 4-6 students who love to perform!

This workshop is the perfect opportunity for your child to develop fundamental acting skills, gain confidence, and explore their creativity. With a focus on the basic principles of acting, students will learn to express themselves, create compelling characters, and work together as a team.

Our experienced and passionate instructors will guide your child through a variety of fun and engaging activities, including warm-up exercises, voice and movement work, characterisation, scene work, and improvisation. Through these exercises, your child will develop their acting skills, build confidence, and have fun!

At the end of the workshop, your child will have the opportunity to showcase their skills in a final performance for family and friends.

What you will learn:

  • Characterisation – how to create and develop believable characters for the stage.
  • Voice and Movement – vocal projection, clarity and enunciation as well as gesture, posture and physicality.
  • Script Analysis – How to break down a script, analyse the characters and motivations and create a compelling performance.
  • Improvisation skills – develop their creativity, spontaneity and teamwork.

Spaces will be limited so enrol now to avoid disappointment!
