“My wife and I are strong supporters of this development for our boys as we can see the confidence it helps develop in them for speaking and performing in front of others and the camera. You may not know but since our last class with you, the boys have done a spot for Wurrawhy which should air later this year, and have now regularly been chosen to present in front of their classes or the school and both played roles in the traditional Christmas Eve Nativity play at our Parish church in front of quite a large crowd.”


“Great news. Thomas has been offered representation. I just told him and he screamed with excitement over the phone. Thank you so much Jack for helping him to prepare for the Go-see and everything beforehand. He has developed a real sense of fun and enjoyment with acting since joining BYT. Thank you too Heidi for making BYT a place where both Tom and Lachlan look forward to every week."

“I read on your website that acting skills can boost a child's self-esteem and confidence, but didn't expect what Simone came out with tonight.

She blew me away!!! I'm gob smacked at how well Simone has come along. She doesn't like to practice in front of me (lucky I don't always hear her at home!!)  so I had no idea what was coming lol. Thank you so much"


“Lucy came home raving about her experiences yesterday, and jumped out of bed excited to get going this morning! This [holiday] course is fantastic for helping her self esteem and confidence, and she and I appreciate your efforts very much.”


“I wanted to let you know that Tyler adores coming to the classes each week and you are really inspiring him to pursue a career in acting.  Thank you to each and every one of your team for doing such a wonderful job with these kids.  I can see that they all love coming as they leave with such massive smiles on their faces each week!!”
