Triple Threat Course
Get the edge by becoming a ‘Triple Threat’
What do well-known Australian actors Hugh Jackman, Nicole Kidman, Rhonda Burchmore and Lisa McCune have in common? They can all sing, dance and act. In other words, they are all ‘Triple Threats’. The versatility of ‘Triple Threat’ performers means they are equally comfortable on the stage as they are in screen roles, ensuring they are always in high demand. Once upon a time performers who could sing dance and act were rare to find. Today possessing all three skills is almost expected. Think of musicals like A Chorus Line, Hairspray and Cabaret and you will understand why it’s usually only the ‘Triple Threats’ that make the final cut.
Central Coast Conservatorium runs Triple Threat Course
We have engaged well-known Australian musical theatre identities Tim Page and Allan Royal to head our Triple Threat Musical Theatre Course. Triple Threat teaches the full range of performance techniques, including vocal work, acting techniques, character work, improvisation, monologue delivery, audition skills and Broadway style dance routines – all skills that will give participants a genuine edge when it comes to impressing at auditions.
The course is open to high school age students and adults of all ages who are interested in taking their existing singing, dancing or acting abilities to the next level. The course runs on Saturdays from 2.00pm – 4:30pm every Saturday over the school term.
Tim Page and Allan Royal bring years of experience performing in countless musicals, plays, films and television. Both have worked extensively throughout Australia, New Zealand, Asia and on London’s West End. Page is best known for major screen roles in The Young Doctors, A Country Practice, Water Rats and All Saints as well as London West End roles in Aspects of Love and Buddy – The Buddy Holly Story. Royal is best known for stage roles in Jesus Christ Superstar (playing opposite Jon English and Marcia Hines), See Saw and La Cage Aux Folles to name just a few.
“So many people on the Central Coast love their musicals and this is such an effective way to take theatre skills to a whole new level. Theatre companies everywhere are desperately seeking Triple Threat performers who can sing, dance and act,” said Page.
