Loungeroom Project


The Act-Belong-Commit Loungeroom Project is an at-home theatre and performance making challenge that’s free for all Western Australians aged 13-26. Learn, Rehearse, Perform, Win!


The Act-Belong-Commit Loungeroom Project from WA Youth Theatre Co brings you eight weeks of tutorials from 15 professional artists who will share their craft and help you develop your own work.

You will learn a range of theatre and performance making skills in storytelling, character development, acting techniques, movement, comedy and lighting among many others. This will help you develop your own short performance ‘in your loungeroom’, film it on your mobile and submit it to the Loungeroom Jury.

You don’t need any previous experience and you can begin at any time during the eight-week course.

All you need to participate is internet access, a mobile device, a loungeroom (or similar), and a free WAYTCo membership

For more information about the course, the work you will produce, and how it all works please read our Project Guidelines

Once you have signed up as a WAYTCo member you can access additional platforms for interacting with the tutors and each other. Members will have exclusive access to Zoom Q&As with the tutors for each week of the program as well as online discussion groups.

At the end of the course the performance piece you submit could win you a cash prize! There are six Loungeroom Hero Awards up for grabs:

  • Three awards of $600 for Seniors (ages 18-26)
  • Three awards of $300 for Juniors (ages 13-17) decided by our special guest judges 
  • An additional award in each category for People’s Choice

Get involved to stay connected, creative and cheery during a challenging time.
