After completing its successful maiden year, JUTE Theatre School is back by popular demand in 2017 with four terms of quality professional theatre training for young people aged nine to 18 years plus.
JUTE Theatre School was launched at the beginning of 2016 for young people wanting to develop their acting, stage craft and ensemble work. While theatre is for everyone, the school’s curriculum has been created for those with a sense of play, imagination, intelligence and passion for dramatic arts.
Facilitated by one of JUTE’s founding members and vastly experienced actors and teachers, Susan Prince, the training school provides four terms of eight, weekly lessons that are divided into three age groups comprising a maximum of 12 students;7-9 years (GOBO Tribe), 10 – 17 years (PARCAN Tribe) and 18 years plus (THE ENSEMBLE).
According to Ms Prince, JUTE’s stage training for voice, movement and approach to the text has been carefully crafted for age appropriate readiness while the syllabus aims to gradually build a skill-based, holistic performer with a strong foundation in theatre.
“Our mission and core values are to provide team building, self-confidence, self-expression and commitment,” said Ms Prince.
Enrolment for 2017 JUTE Theatre School is now open via the website. Term 1 will commence with afternoon/evening classes on Wednesday, 8 February and will run weekly, for eight weeks, until 29 March. 2017. Payment is required in advance of each term with substantial savings available to those who purchase four terms of tuition in advance.

JUTE came into being in 1992 when three passionate theatre makers living in Cairns met and creative sparks began to fly. The three founding members of JUTE are Kathryn Ash, Suellen Maunder and Susan Prince. JUTE’s first production launched International Womens’ Day in March 1993 at the height of summer in the un-airconditioned arts centre (shed!). The work was fiery, raw and unique in the region….it was an instant success! JUTE produces plays, tells stories, tours and provides a vast and diverse range of training and development programs for emerging and established writers, actors and theatre professionals.
JUTE is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.
