ATYP ONLINE 

At ATYP, we are committed to keeping our doors open - at this time, digitally!

We are excited to be moving our weekly workshop program into the digital space with ATYP Online! We'll run courses live each week via Zoom and Google Classroom, taught by the ATYP tutors you know and love.

We know this is a challenging time, but we will continue to provide our top-quality drama programs giving young people a creative outlet and a shared space until we can all be together again. In addition, we are pleased to announce that Creative Kids vouchers can be used for all online drama classes giving parents a $100 discount on Term 2 weekly classes.

Take a look at what's on offer and we'll see you in our online drama rooms!
