About Theatre SKAM and SKAM Studios

Kate Rubin Theatre is now under the umbrella of Theatre SKAM, a local not-for-profit company who has been playing to theatre audiences in Victoria and on tour for 22 years. Part of Theatre SKAM’s mandate is to encourage and employ emerging artists, so taking over a well loved, well attended, and hugely respected school was an easy decision to make.  SKAM’s philosophy to encourage youth and adults to explore their creativity goes hand-in-hand with Kate Rubin’s viewpoint of theatrical learning. 

The SKAM Studios create a homey and safe environment for students and professionals alike. 

What the studio encourages most in students is:

  • Flexibility (in voice, body, mind, attitude)
  • Self Motivation and responsibility
  • Supportiveness towards others and self
  • Courage
  • Imagination and playfulness
  • Concentration and focus
  • Being an attentive audience member
  • Variety of experience and learning
