PART TIME 2021-2022


The Part Time Program at 16th Street Actors Studio prepares passionate actors with the skill to work professionally on the Australian and global stage in theatre and in film.  

16th Street exposes actors to the world’s finest and most highly regarded acting techniques. The studio brings the wisdom of the past together with the cutting edge learnings of the present. We inspire the very best in the actors we train for their future in art, their profession and in life.

We nurture actors to use their voices and through their artistry, craft and humanity, bring characters and stories to life that engage, move, uplift, and entertain audiences. We believe the world needs stories that connect us to our shared humanity, make us think in new ways and feel more compassionately towards each other. And we need actors who have the talent and craft to dynamically play their part in the telling of those stories. 

The Part Time Program allows for gestation of the learning process while accommodating a training/work balance for actors who need to fulfil their other work commitments. 

We encourage actors to celebrate their unique talent, to dare to grow and be courageous to be all they are capable of being.

16th Street Actors Studio fosters discipline, dedication, curiosity and respect for the craft of acting. 

We provide actors with a vibrant and compassionate community in which to learn and grow. 

Our actors are professionally mentored and supported to navigate personal challenges with wisdom, resilience and grace.

We believe an actor’s development as a human being is intimately connected with their artistic potential.

The Part Time Program is led by award winning theatre director Iain Sinclair (Head of Acting) and an experienced ensemble of industry professionals and teachers. 

Classes are held on Monday and Wednesday evenings from 7.00PM – 10.00PM  and Saturday from 9.00AM – 5.00PM. Extra rehearsals are a requirement of the Program.
