Kids Up Front Drama Academy was founded in 1999 by Karin Clifford to provide a creative and fun after school drama program designed to develop children’s confidence and self-esteem. Since then thousands of children have benefitted from the classes and the program itself has been developed over the years with a collaboration of experience from a dedicated team of teachers.

The drama classes are fun and dynamic and children learn skills of improvising, working as part of a team and devising theatre. Each year around twenty groups in Sydney and a few groups in Melbourne prepare for performing at the theatre in our Annual Shows. (See Annual Shows for more information).

In 2009 the hugely popular ‘ Performing Arts Holiday Camps’ were launched offering children the opportunity to Sing, Act and Dance and work throughout a week with specialist teachers to produce a fabulous musical show.

Every school holidays hundreds of children participate in the themed camps in Sydney, Auckland and Melbourne.

With limited places and extended hours (until 5:30 pm Monday to Thursday) which are a huge plus for working parents they are hugely popular and often fill up, so please book early to avoid disappointment.



Just a little opening montage we whipped up this morning at the Melbourne Camp! 🤩
