What is Theatre Residency Week?

Theatre Residency Week (TRW) is a week-long intensive theatre camp for students in years 9-12 run by Queensland Theatre. Students live on campus at Stuartholme School in its boarding facilities and spend each day developing their acting skills, with workshops and activities. Students work towards creating a group performance for a live audience, which families and friends can come watch on the final day. In the evening, students are engaged in an exciting social and cultural program, including excursions to see live theatre and opportunities to network with leading artists from Queensland Theatre. It is held each year in the September school holidays and is attended by students from all over Australia.

When and where?
Theatre Residency Week will run from Monday, 18 September – Sunday, 24 September 2017. It is held at Stuartholme School, Toowong.

How is it supervised?
In the daily workshop program, students choose core group activities to suit their interests. Each of these core groups (usually a maximum of 20 students) are taught by experienced Teaching Artists, carefully selected by Queensland Theatre. For their pastoral care, they are divided into House Parent Groups of approximately 20 students. Each House Parent is experienced in working with young people and we ensure a number of House Parents have First Aid Training, with a fully qualified First Aid Officer onsite at all times. All staff on site at TRW hold Blue Cards and have successfully completed a Working with Children Check by the Queensland Government. Students are supervised at all times and Queensland Theatre exercises their utmost duty of care in the undertaking of the week, but also ask students to exhibit their best self-care and respect at all times.
