Professional Full Time Acting Program


The Professional Full Time Acting Program at 16th Street Actors Studio based in Melbourne prepares passionate actors with the skill to work professionally on the Australian and global stage in theatre and in film.  

16th Street exposes actors to the world’s finest and most highly regarded acting techniques. The studio brings the wisdom of the past together with the cutting edge learnings of the present. We inspire the very best in the actors we train for their future in art, their profession and in life.

We nurture actors to use their voices and, through their artistry, craft and humanity, bring characters and stories to life that engage, move, uplift and entertain audiences. We believe the world needs stories that connect us to our shared humanity, make us think in new ways and feel more compassionately towards each other. And we need actors who have the talent and craft to dynamically play their part in the telling of those stories.
