The Scene Project

The Scene Project is Queensland Theatre’s largest Education offering, encouraging drama students throughout the state to engage in the creative process of performance, from rehearsal through to presentation.

The Scene Project 2020 Cinnamon Smith 1

Each year a playwright pens a new work and the participating drama groups are tasked with the challenge of creating their own unique 15 minute version of the play. During the rehearsal phase, Queensland Theatre artists visit the participating schools to facilitate workshops. The Scene Project is about collaboration, acknowledging students and teachers as artists, building confidence and encouraging live performance in a professional space and manner. It is also an excellent way of participating in professional development and enhancing existing curriculum in schools.

The project concludes with local schools coming together in a professional theatre venue to share their performance. On this day, a cast of professional Queensland Theatre actors also present a full interpretation of the play (under the same ‘minimalist’ parameters that schools have), providing young artists and their teachers with new ways of making and shaping texts that can be taken into their classrooms. The final stage of the project is a learning forum which allows for students to acknowledge the skill and artistry of their peers as well as engage in robust discussions around process and performance building.

Artist in Residence workshops
In the event that your school will still be able to have an artist visit and facilitate a workshop during Term 2, please let us know and we can make arrangements for that to happen.

Outcome Day
Queensland Theatre is planning for different variables when it comes to the outcome day for the project including different modes of delivery based on your school’s capacity to engage (these include both live and recorded opportunities). More information will be provided in the coming weeks for schools to make individual decisions about how you would like to be involved.

Invoices this year will be flexible and based on the level of your school’s capacity to engage. They will be issued at the conclusion of the project (the total cost will not exceed the original cost of the project). If you have any concerns regarding payment please do not hesitate to get in touch.
