Other information

At each meeting we read a full-length play from World Theatre. Our selection of plays is restricted to those written in, or translated into, English and available as sets from the Victorian Drama League Library.
Play reading is an exercise in empathy for each of us. For three hours we must shed our own identity to take part in another story entirely. Unlike actors, who have time to study and rehearse, we readers must discover who we are, and our part in the story, as we read. Of course, we cannot hope for the dramatic experience of a rehearsed performance, but we can come close to this when we read a play that we have seen performed on stage or screen. This often happens because suggestions of plays to read have always been, and will always be, welcome.
TUTOR: Fay has been a member of U3APP for the past few years and has enjoyed participating in this course during that time.

Classes will be cancelled if Covid restrictions do not allow face-to-face classes

How to Enrol

On-line: after bookings have opened

On-line enrolments are preferred as this significantly reduces the amount of back-office work for our volunteers.

  • Login to the U3APP.org.au website.
  • Go to the Courses & Enrolling page.
  • Scroll down to find the course that you are interested in.
  • Does the course have spaces available?
    • Click on the course name to go to the booking page.
    • Click on “Book for this course or event”.
    • You will receive a confirmation email.  Please check your Junk/Spam folders as these automatically-generated emails often finish up there.

    • Click on WAITLIST.

Paper Enrolment Form: before bookings open for First Semester

  • Obtain a paper Enrolment Form either from the Office or by printing an online copy available here.
  • Complete the paper Enrolment Form and submit it to the Office.

The start date for acceptance of paper Enrolment Forms for first semester is published on the U3APP website and in the e-Bulletin. Enrolment Forms received before this date are treated as though they had been received on the start date (ie there is no advantage to be gained by submitting early). On the start date and thereafter, paper Enrolment Forms are numbered in order of receipt.  Paper Enrolment forms are processed by U3APP volunteers on the same day as on-line bookings.

If your enrolment is successful, you will receive a confirmation email.  Please check your Junk/Spam folders as these automatically-generated emails often finish up there.

If your enrolment is unsuccessful,  you will receive an email telling you that you have been waitlisted.
