Welcome to Class Act Theatre's Website
Class Act Theatre Incorporated is Western Australia’s largest unfunded Theatre In Education Company. Now in its 20th year, Class Act has been successfully operating as a non-profit co-operative. It relies solely on its own resources! The members of Class Act have had years of experience in this field, and to date the company has produced over 44 original plays (around 7.700 performances) to over one million children. Its prime aim is to provide an exciting and entertaining way of teaching syllabus subjects at schools. It has been an invaluable aid to many teachers. An important feature of the company is that it performs in available spaces at schools, rather than in a fixed venue. Thus it brings theatre at a very reasonable price to children who might otherwise never be exposed to live drama.
Class Act productions combine relevant contemporary issues (such as the environment, substance abuse, bullying, depression and family values), with a sparkling mixture of humour, song and dance. Even the most sensitive of issues is treated in a way that makes the productions non-threatening and fun for both children and teachers. Class Act plays, uses the language of the schoolyard to bring serious issues to life, making them easily understandable to everyone.
Angelique Malcolm has been the artistic director and administrator of Class Act Theatre since its inception in 1994 and welcomes any feedback and suggestions from schools.
Class Act audiences range from pre-primary children to adults, and the style of each production is tailored accordingly.
Class Act, in recent times, has also produced quality "adult" theatre productions at established venues around Perth including Shakespeare's "Macbeth" and "Othello" and Hannie Rayson's "Hotel Sorrento". The company has a commitment to bring large cast syllabus texts to life at a professional level for the enjoyment of both students and the general public.
