Colourful Holiday Workshops

For creative kids in prep - 12

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.

My daughter and her friend have done at least one workshop together every school holidays for the past couple of years. They just love it. Especially the musical ones.

Prep – Grade 2

Designed for maximum energy, creativity and fun for the littlest learners in our studio. Little Experts workshops are just that – age appropriate workshops to capture little ones’ imaginations.

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 2. 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. Bring a packed lunch! Before and after care is also available.

Little Experts workshops are $88 for each day.

A Play in a Day
Grade 3 – 6

A Play in a Day… no way!? In this workshop, students develop advanced skills and techniques as they bring a show to life in just one day. Students will leave inspired, confident and proud. 

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 $99 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. Bring a packed lunch!

Grade 1 – 6

Our three day production extravaganza! Workshop and perform a full-length play or musical in just three days. From auditions and casting, to rehearsing, character and skill development (like singing, mime and movement), learning lines, and performing, Born to Perform workshops are filled with energy, focus and passion as students work together to put a show on stage in record time.

Our three day Born to Perform workshops are for students in grade 1 to grade 6. For older children, we recommend our 5 day Born to Performs.

Three day workshops are $385 each and run from 9am – 3.30pm each day with a performance and party on the Friday afternoon. Students will have morning tea and lunch breaks during the day which they will provide themselves and will be supervised at all times.

Learn A New Skill


Express Themselves

Dress Up

It was great giving my child an opportunity to do something new, that is hard to find time to do in term time. I really liked the musical theatre combo – it really stretches and inspires.

Can parents stay and watch?

We prefer if parents do not stay to watch the workshops as your presence can be a little distracting for our students and teachers. We would love to welcome you to watch the performance at the end of certain workshops, and we promise to share lots of photos and videos at the end of the week. Thanks for understanding.

What do we bring and wear?

Students should wear comfortable clothes. Dressing up is encouraged! Please send your child with snacks and a water bottle so we can ensure they stay hydrated throughout the day.
