Acting Classes at Q44 Acting Studio

The Q44 One Day Workshop

For actors who have an interest in our Performance Incubator Program or for those who have a curiosity about the foundations of Method Acting. Actors will be given a monologue from a short contemporary scene to prepare. The piece will be explored and evolved throughout the day.

Cost: $374 inc GST

Performance Incubator Program

A unique actor training program ran by the Artistic Director Gabriella Rose-Carter and Vocal Specialist Suzanne Heywood. Unlike traditional Scene Study classes it is designed to further enhance the actor’s experience by providing them the opportunity to perform in front of a public audience upon the end of a four-month term.

Cost: $423.50 inc GST per month

Actor’s Retreat

The retreat offers a unique experience in actor training. It takes place over a long weekend (36 hours) and provides the opportunity for total immersion in the work which will encourage the actor to confront their habits, limitations and preconceptions about acting.

Private Coaching

Professional Jobs, Auditions & Creative Development.

These one hour private sessions give the actor an opportunity to work on material that cannot be covered in a scene study class.


“Gab is an astonishing, incredible and intuitive teacher who has inspired, excited and pushed me for the last three years. I have more tools in my toolbox, I bring more depth to my work and I, therefore, have a greater sense of confidence.”
Dana Miltins, The Rabble Theatre

“You are a living example of Lee’s work. I’ve loved seeing and working with you.”
Ellen Burstyn, The Actors Studio, New York

“Melbourne has a long history of independent Theatre and Theatre makers and so the lineage continues in the guise of Q44. We as a community are fortunate to have Gabrielle Rose Carter, who instigated Q44, leading a fine team of Creatives making innovative Theatre for all of us to enjoy.”
– Louise Siversen, Actress (House Husbands)
