  • An original piece for your portfolio 
  • Polish yourself as an actor performer artist 
  • A stage to perform and complete the experience 


Special benefits: Each individual is unique. Hence, our needs and goals are unique too. When you join, let the facilitator know what your goal is and the personal mentorship will guide you that way.

Eg: communication skills, stage fear, confidence, improving sales pitch, exploring actor side and professional acting career aspirations.


Who is this for: 

  • Students aged 16 to 25 who want to polish their public speaking communication confidence and other skills. 
  • Professionals aged 25 to 55 who want all of the above or want to touch upon the nascent acting aspiration that was put away for professional and family responsibilities. (You made sacrifices we feel you. We will make sure your dream to perform comes true!)
  • Adults aged 55 and above who want to come back to acting or want to grow youthful with new experiences.

*Children above the age of 10 may apply and two spots will be made available.


What will the process be:

  • You will have 4 hours sessions per week for 5 weeks. Which means this is a 20 hours program where the facilitator will be involved. There will be 6 additional rehearsals of 10 to 12 hours duration through the final week. 
  • Over and above the facilitators role you will be coached to carry on similar rehearsal at your end as self-work equivalent to about 20 hours per week (Approximately 30 minutes a day only.)
  • Eventually we would expect collective performance development by the participants. Performance is included in the program; however participants may choose the degree of their participation. This is voluntary and up-to the participant’s comfort; the coaches will encourage maximum participation
