Hear from ACA’s Patron,
“I am often asked why Australian actors are doing so well on the international stage and my first response is always that the training we receive is world-class. Certainly for me, ACA was a huge part of my development. ACA lit my passion for the craft and the fundamentals I learnt here are a huge part of the foundations I take to work with me every day.
“Returning to ACA, I was thrilled to see that the spirit, vitality, warmth and joy of the place is very much alive. I look forward to sharing my experiences with the students and also watching them grow as artists. I really have to thank all the staff at ACA for instilling in me that sense of play, risk taking and adventure that has made acting so fulfilling for me.”

Chairman and Director
“I am proud to be a part of a legacy that was started over 30 years ago. Now more than ever is the time to celebrate the power of theatre to enrich and enliven the narrative that dwells in the human heart and soul.”
A message from Clover Moore
“The Actors Centre has made a significant contribution to Australia’s theatrical life since its doors opened on 27 June, 1987. The Actors Centre has nurtured young talent, provided opportunities for established actors to hone their skills and invited people from all walks of life to explore the joy of performing. Many of your graduates have succeeded in Australia and internationally. The Actors Centre has also made a significant local contribution, with its involvement in youth mentorship programs and support of local schools and community organisations. I congratulate you on your achievements.”
Audition for ACA’s 2020 International Acting Program!
Each group audition session lasts for 2 hours and will be conducted by Dean Carey.
Each person needs to prepare two monologues no more than 2 minutes in length: one monologue needs to be written pre 1930 (considered classical), and one monologue written post 1930 (considered modern).
You should choose pieces you feel you could be cast in and which suit you.
You can perform each monologue in any language of your choosing.
There will be a group warm-up and time to prepare yourself to share your monologues with the group.
The audition environment will be dynamic and fun, allowing you to do your best work.
