Perform Australia

Booth No. 63

If you’re looking to become a professional actor, look no further than Perform Australia. Perform Australia is Canberra’s only provider of accredited actor training for the aspiring professional performer.  In addition to roles on stage or screen, studying acting can open the door to a wide range of employment opportunities which require performance skills.  Our graduates have worked in television, theatre, film, musical theatre, radio, podcasting, arts admin, voiceover artistry, writing, and many other related fields. You can train professionally in an accredited course (like our 10915NAT Certificate IV in Acting or our 11017NAT Advanced Diploma of Performance), or simply join an afternoon or evening recreational program that introduces you to the foundations of acting.

If you’re in Years 7-10, you may also be interested in our Thrive Program, which is a full-time day school program at our Fyshwick campus, which combines distance education for academic subjects, and face-to-face performing arts education with industry tutors daily.

Our Young Professionals Program in Years 11 and 12 allows you to complete our Certificate IV and Advanced Diploma programs by the end of college, and get your Year 12 Certificate, so you’re ready for industry from there.

So if you’re looking to get trained as an actor in film, television and theatre, get started with Perform Australia.
