Yes – every term we welcome new young people into our workshops! You don’t have to have any previous experience. We would love for you to come and play, create and discover with us.

We don’t offer trial sessions for the Gecko Ensemble program. The reason being is that often the first class doesn’t give an accurate reflection of what participating in a term of Gecko Ensembles will look like.

Gecko Ensembles explore a diverse range of drama and creative strategies that can vary from week to week, so we ask that Geckos come along for two-three weeks to really get a true experience of the program. If after that, they find it really isn’t their cup of tea we can refund for the remainder of the term less a small admin fee ($25).

No. Due to safety and security every young person must be enrolled before attending a workshop.
