Colourful Holiday Workshops

For creative kids

Inclusive School Holiday Workshops


Speak Up Studio’s school holiday workshops are where creative kids come to make friends, have fun and express themselves. Our school holiday program focusses on developing self-confidence, communication skills and creativity through drama, musical theatre, acting, craft and sometimes even science.


Speak Up school holiday workshops are split into three levels based on age, complexity and length. Choose a day of workshops or mix and match throughout the week. Some students even come every day. Whether you’re looking for something to keep your kids entertained or want to see what Speak Studio is all about, we’ve got you covered.
Unsure of which workshop to choose? Give us a call on 07 3367 8572 if you would like a recommendation!

Dress Up

Speak Up Studio’s Little Experts workshops are fun, engaging and finish with an exciting outcome, usually a performance, photoshoot or a fancy craft to take home.

These holiday workshops are designed for primary school students in prep to grade two. Grade three students are welcome, but the content will be somewhat easy for them. For older children, we recommend our A Play in a Day or Born to Perform.

Our holiday workshops run from 9am to 3.30pm each day. Before and after care is also available.

Little Experts workshops are $120 for each day. Book for the week and save $100.

A Play in a Day

We can’t tell you what will happen in these acting workshops because, well, it hasn’t happened yet. It’s a play that comes together in a single day. We begin with a theme and some games to get our creativity flowing. From there, our performance evolves as we create characters, write the script, pick music and create costumes and props. You won’t just take to the stage, you’ll have a say in the creative and artistic direction of the day.

These workshops are for students in grade 3 to grade 6. For younger children, we recommend our Little Experts program.

A Play In A Day workshops are $125 each and run from 9am – 3.30pm. Students will have morning tea and lunch breaks during the workshops and will be supervised at all times. Book in for the week and save $100.
