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!

Creative Holiday Care
Prep – Grade 8

An alternative to school based holiday care – it’s an imaginative arts based holiday care program for creative kids. The aim is for kids to feel at home for the week while enjoying energising drama and art activities.

Why kids come back again and again

Learn A New Skill


Express Themselves

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 four. Grade five and six 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 8. 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.


Are you a trickster with terrible pranks, antics and shenanigans? We'll start with words like crime, villain and good guys to plot our story of tumultuous self-reform.

A swish and a flick! Whether it's charms you excel at or the dark arts, there is sure to be no lack of magic. We'll start with words like wand, spells and potions to harness your inner witch or wizard.

Tuesday 28th July

Grade 3 - 8

A long lost Prophecy, a hidden kingdom and a dark secret. Inspired by ``Wings of Fire`` we'll write our own mythical adventure. We'll start with words like tribes, powers and royal duties.

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.
