Meri Kirihimete! In the spirit of Christmas, we are offering the gift of knowledge in the new year. Toi Whakaari has the exciting opportunity to offer a one-day masterclass for professional actors, taught by international guest and acting teacher Ken Rea, here in Wellington in February 2023!

Based on the teachings of his book The Outstanding Actor: Seven Keys To Success, Ken’s masterclass aims to show you how to level up your success, do more exciting work as an actor and secure better jobs.

As Professor of Theatre at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, Ken has taught a number of recognisable and successful actors – Ewan McGregor, Orlando Bloom, Lily James, Hayley Atwell, Paapa Essiedu, and Daniel Craig, to name a few.

"Ken's classes were some of the most interesting and diverse that I was lucky enough to attend in drama school. He opened the mind to what acting could be. There seemed no end to the possibilities, to the depth, only how far you were prepared to go." - Ewan McGregor

We are looking to hold this masterclass on Saturday February 11th, at Te Whaea: National Dance & Drama Centre and numbers will be limited. 

If you’re interested in expanding your kete of knowledge, send your Expression Of Interest by January 15th, 2023 to
