Students actors are enjoying a backstage pass to the industry, thanks to a collaboration with Queensland Theatre.
Queensland Conservatorium is supporting Brisbane's emerging playwrights by commissioning a new work from a local writer each year as part of the Bachelor of Acting program.
This week marks the launch of Griffith University's new Bachelor of Acting, and the first intake of students can't wait to get started. Peter Irankunda said he was "head over heels" about being accepted into the course. "To think that I get to spend the next three years studying acting gets me excited," he said.
The Queensland Conservatorium's new acting degree has received a stamp of approval from Academy Award winning actress, Dame Judi Dench.
