Master Class Auditing - Sydney

The twice-annual Howard Fine Master Class is the most intensive four days of tuition offered by The Studio. Each full day of the program consists of a rigorous exploration of technique as Howard works with an ensemble of actors on preselected scenes.  

Auditing the Master Class represents a unique learning opportunity and provides the best possible introduction into the work, techniques and ethos of The Studio. We strongly recommend auditing the Master Class to anyone interested in undertaking study at The Studio.  

As an auditor, you will actively observe the class, experiencing the work through the Master Class ensemble and Howard’s critique. Auditors are given the opportunity to ask questions, and are provided with a list of the texts that the participants will be work-shopping, enabling them to study the source material and appreciate Howard’s approach to script analysis.  

In order to make the most of auditing the Master Class and gain a thorough understanding of Howard’s approach to technique training, we strongly encourage auditors to read Howard’s book, ‘Fine on Acting: A Vision of the Craft’ prior to the class, and to audit all four days of the Master Class.

Dates and times:

June 24 - 27, 9:30am - 6:30pm each day. Auditors can elect to attend on any or all days of the four day class. 


Single day pass: $110

Weekend pass (Saturday & Sunday): $200

Four day pass: $395* (*those who purchase a full priced four day auditing pass will be given a complimentary copy of Howard's book, 'Fine on Acting', to be collected on the first day of the class. Students must be able to present a receipt for their ticket in order to claim their book).
