Adrian started Upstage in 1999 with a simple principle at its core — to create an environment that would produce fully rounded young performers:

“I wanted the students to take part in all three disciplines i.e. acting, singing and dance so that when they perform on stage, they have what we call 'chops'-that's how actors are taught in England. And the skills learnt in the performing arts are so useful to young people whatever future career they choose.”

Early Bird discount available until March 15th, 2017. Full refund (less $100 handling fee) if cancelled before May 12th. No refunds after May 12th, however fees can be applied toward another camp subject to availability.

A sibling discount is available to those enrolling more than one child on a camp. The discount is equal to 15% off the full price for each additional child. If you would like a Sibling Discount please request a code via the Product Enquiry tab above, or through the contact page.
