Become an actor in theatre, film and television.

TAFE SA acting courses are built on the philosophy that studying acting is studying humanity. Our rigorous actor training program equips you for a career in mainstream theatre, film and TV, as well as creating successful and innovative theatre. Our graduates also pursue interests in teaching, directing, producing and writing theatre. Core disciplines of acting, movement and voice are supported by studies in singing, theatre history and screen acting, with a busy production schedule in our fully equipped theatres.
