About Hunter Drama

Hunter Drama was established in 2007. From humble beginnings we have grown to become an international award winning academy for young actors. We currently run around 30 classes in Newcastle, Singleton and Maitland in drama, musical theatre and screen acting. We stage large scale musical productions across the Hunter region and driven by our mission, which is to inspirer young people to be the best versions of themselves. We have a team of over 20 staff and tutors all working out of our home base at the Young Actors Development Centre in Newcastle.

Daniel Stranger will facilitate the classes. Daniel is a BA Drama graduate from the United Kingdom, a seasoned dramatist, performer, writer and director with extensive experience in youth work. We are thrilled to be able to now offer the students in Cessnock the wider range of opportunities that come with being associated with a bigger organisation such as Hunter Drama. Students will be exposed to major production opportunities like Disney’s Aladdin JR and our specially designed Hunter Drama Syllabus. Students and families will also be given access to our closed Hunter Drama Family Network Facebook group where we regularly post information about major professional production auditions and television castings. Most importantly students will be exposed to other like-minded young people with the same interests.
