Kids Love Shakespeare Classes at Henegar



The Feller Academy’s goal is to nurture the academic and emotional education of young people through theatre; and to make the rich benefits reaped from the experience available to all socio-economic levels and all traditionally underserved populations..

The arts find themselves in a very precarious position in schools and in some communities due to difficult economic challenges. Introducing young people to the world of theatre remains at the core of what we do in education programming The Henegar Center.

We strive to further these three key areas:

AUDIENCES: inspiring current and future audiences to discover theatre and its connection to their lives.

ARTISTS: investing in training, support and development of emerging young arts professionals who are the future of our field.

ARTS EDUCATION: contributing to the community-wide efforts to improve the quality and scope of arts education in Melbourne.

The Henegar Center is committed to ensuring the arts are accessible to the widest possible community by offering a number of education and community outreach programs.
