For kids who can’t get enough

Some kids are happy with one class a week, others wish they had drama every day.

For these kids, there’s the Performers Program! 

If your child has been enrolled in Speak Up group classes and is absolutely loving it, then our Performers Program is the next step in your child’s Speech and Drama journey.

Our performers program offers these kids extra support as they are challenged and inspired at the next level. Students connect more with their peers in smaller classes and longer lessons. We offer them more individualised learning and exciting new opportunities and performances. 

Year At A Glance


Our Performers Program follows a similar structure to our group classes but with more involvement at events and performances. 

Showcase Evenings
Each Term


At the end of each term we have a gorgeous showcase for our performers program students. These are held in our beautiful theatre space in Spring Hill. They are relaxed, joyful events.

Imagination Festival
Term 2


Performers Program kids have the opportunity to enter pieces into different sections in the Festival. More stage time equals more practise and accelerated improvement. 

Speech and Drama Exams
Term 2 & 3


In Term 2 and 3, students put together a program of pieces that are thematically linked and perform in front of an examiner, where they’ll gain valuable feedback to hone their craft. 

Annual Concert
Term 4


At our end of year concert, Performers are more involved, with more time on stage and special parts in the show. As members of the main cast they will attend extra rehearsals and have the chance to be part of a full length production.

Speak Up is a place where our daughter is loved and valued and is made to feel accepted for exactly who she is. A very professional business with staff members who are genuinely passionate about the arts industry. We feel blessed to be a part of the Speak Up community.

Are you keen to join?

Performers Program classes are built around students who are ready to step up. You can’t just sign up to a class in the parent portal. We like to get to know your child (either through our group classes or holiday workshops) so we know who they are, what their goals are, and how to bring out the best in them.


Classes are conducted in pairs for private lessons or groups of four for Philosophers. We’ll recommend the format that’s best for your child.


When creating a class, we focus on personalities, connecting kids and teachers who’ll click. We also work with families to schedule classes at a time that suits.


Private Lesson

Thanks very much for the email about Zara’s exam. We were quite amazed at the comments from the examiner. Thank you for your energy and input in helping her feel confident and “glow”.
