Durban Actors Studio, founded in 2007, is a part-time, extramural, performing arts training centre. Our aim is to nurture and advance artistic ability and creative confidence in all our students; children to adults.
We offer training in Acting, Musical Theatre, Mime, Devising Drama, Public Speaking, Improvisation, Movement, Reading for Performance, Shakespeare and Greek Theatre period performance. As well as the soon to be launched Film/TV training, which will cover Presenting on Camera, Camera Audition Skills, Multi-Cam Technique and more.
We stage various productions throughout the year; from dramas, to musical theatre, to talent showcases and reviews.
We offer career advice to students and, whilst we are not a casting agency, casting directors and producers do contact us directly looking for featured talent because they know the level of skills we impart in our students. We only promote these casting and audition opportunities to students; people whom we know will meet performance expectations.
Our students have performed in professional stage productions locally, nationally and internationally, been cast in national and international movies and TV advertisements. They are some of the voice over talent you hear on local radio and officially represented South Africa, performing at the Commonwealth Games, Glasgow, alongside the National Scottish Youth Theatre
