Welcome to ATYP’s autumn holiday program. Following record numbers of participants for our Summer program, our Ensemble classes going as strong as ever and an amazing production of Intersection to kick of 2017, now is the time to come down to The Wharf and get involved with ATYP. And what a wonderful line-up we have in store these holidays! Our juniors can unlock their imaginations with our Mysterious Keys course, or solve the mystery of why their teddy bear has disappeared. Perhaps you want to test your skills as you create your own game show or delve into the black hole of science fiction. Also back by popular demand is our Rags to Riches course exploring musicals from Oliver to Matilda. Our seniors have a fantastic opportunity to sharpen their HSC skills and work on their audition technique. There are improvisation and comedy courses as well as devising and theatre-making classes based around themes of mystery and rumours. They can explore short filmmaking or create a performance post about the complex world of social media. With four-day courses around the Easter holiday, we’re looking forward to you being part of the ATYP community this autumn. Robert Jago Workshops Manager
