About The

Second Age Project

The Second Age Project takes its name from the character Jacques famous “all the world’s a stage” monologue from Shakespeare’s As You Like It


The Second Age Project offers exciting training and performance opportunities to enthusiastic and talented young performers in their 'second age' (high school-age)! Our programs are open to 12-18 year olds.


In 2021, The Second Age Project offers extra curricular acting training, rehearsal and performance opportunities. The Second Age Project now offers students the opportunity to Online and In-person!


Following the successful implementation of online classes in 2020, we are excited to extend this online offering in 2021 for regional young actors or those unable to participate in our in-person production for other reasons.

"All the world's a stage

and all the men and women, merely players; 

They have their exits and their entrances, 

And one man in his time plays many parts, 

His acts being seven ages..."

The Second Age is the school child with 'shining morning face'

Summer Season Show


Available to watch online soon!

Enthusiastic young performers send in their auditions by Friday, 17 September to take part in our Online Summer Show! Starting in the NSW school holidays and continuing throughout Term 4, performers will rehearse and perform in a thrilling one-hour play drawing from Shakespeare's greatest texts.

We are thrilled to be continuing our online show, and are taking expressions of interest for our in-person show. We hope to hold in-person shows as soon as the NSW public health order will allow, but we encourage young performers interested in further developing their theatre skills to check out what the Second Age Project can offer them in a friendly and safe online environment in 2021.


We ask that you please submit a video audition of your chosen Shakespeare monologue in your application - and have created an audition tips and tricks document to help you prepare, film and have fun in your audition! Video auditions are to help with casting and creation of the show - all applicants are accepted until capacity is reached!
