Durban Actors Studio

Durban Actors Studio, founded in 2007, is a part-time, extramural, performing arts training centre.  Our aim is to nurture and advance artistic ability and creative confidence in all our students; children to adults.  

We offer training in Acting, Musical Theatre, Mime, Devising Drama, Public Speaking, Improvisation, Movement, Reading for Performance, Shakespeare and Greek Theatre period performance. As well as the soon to be launched Film/TV training, which will cover Presenting on Camera, Camera Audition Skills, Multi-Cam Technique and more.

We stage various productions throughout the year; from dramas, to musical theatre, to talent showcases and reviews. Whilst we are not a casting agency, due to the quality of training we provide at our studio, casting directors and producers do contact us directly looking for specific talent.

Our students have performed in professional productions locally, nationally and internationally, been cast in international movies, TV advertisements, been voice over artists for radio advertisements and have officially represented our country, South Africa, performing at the Commonwealth Games, Glasgow, alongside the National Scottish Youth Theatre.
