What is TRY theatre?

    TRY theatre is a cool place

    because it does not insist that children should be taught things.

    because it understands that children contain knowledge and flair that they are not using.

    TRY theatre is a cool place

    because it allows its students to open up their knowledge and flair in a creative environment.

TRY theatre is an acting school that allows its students to release their creativity, personalities and talents in a safe, encouraging environment. Through acting, games and activities, students acquire acting knowledge and confidence organically – not by having to learn, but through personal experience.


Join us!

  • If you think that acting is cool.
  • If you would like to speak English more often (it does not matter how well you speak it now!)
  • If you like to laugh and have fun.
  • If you are not afraid to stop being afraid.

Where We Work!

Our activities are based on workshops that take place twice a week for 60 or 90 minutes. The students learn the fundamentals of acting, articulation, accents, movement, breathing techniques and expression. All workshops are conducted in English, and students are divided into groups of twelve or less.

London Calling Spring 2016

Let’s not just act in English – let’s also act in England!

Due to its long-established partnerships with the National Youth Theatre, The Globe and the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, TRY will be taking a group of students to London in late March 2016 during the Easter break. In addition to seeing the magnificent metropolis, students will have a chance to take part in a NYT workshop, as well as get a customised tour of the Globe theatre! More info, exact dates and pricing to be released soon.


The TRY Promise


We promise to give equal importance to every child. Every performance has bigger and smaller roles, but at TRY we cater and tailor each role to bring out the confidence and individual qualities out our students. We think it is important to recognize that standing on the center of the stage is not the only place for students of drama to feel inspired. There is the writing, and the directing, the lighting, and the costumes, and the sets, and so much more that goes on behind the scenes where students are needed and inspired.


We promise to be challenging. Drama should be a reflection of our society and cultures, not an endless re-rendition of haute culture. Our scripts and performances are developed anew each season, sometimes as a collaborative effort and sometimes through sheer inspiration. But all of them deal with issues that stem from the students themselves and that the students can relate to organically. At TRY we understand that acting is useless if the performers do not bring in their energy. Our work energizes.

Too Hip to Quit

We promise to be hip. Drama is often seen as a reflection of our society and culture. Our scripts and performances are developed new each season, sometimes as a collaborative effort and sometimes through divine inspiration. We do our best to stay current and to use the issues of our day as a challenge and a way to understand ourselves and the world around us. Shakespeare continues to be interpreted today by different generations of students.

Safe Environment

We promise to be safe. We understand that the way we work gets the children to be all over the place, and we like it that way. At the same time, we are absolutely aware of each child at every moment, making sure nothing bad happens to any of them. We also understand that teenage years can be cruel and insecure. The environment we build inside the studio is one of mutual understanding, humor and camaraderie. There is no judging at TRY theatre.

A promise is a promise. Our promise is more than just a few words on a page. We promise to stand behind these words and use them as the foundation of all our relationships.

From Barcelona to Belgrade

As far as TRY theatre goes – the more cultures, the better! We strongly believe that travelling and exchanging ideas with people from different places and cultures is essential to personal and social development.

Therefore, TRY is proud to be a partner of INCA (International Network for Culture and Arts) and an active participant in their workshops and trainings. Ever since London 2011, TRY has had its staff and students attend such events and a voice to the creative and social issues being dealt with. In 2015, a delegation of five TRYers, headed by Natali Bosic, will take part in the Street Performance workshop in Barcelona, Spain. Shortly after, a group of three TRYers goes to Belgrade, Serbia, for a Theatre of Change two-week workshop.

Staff members and older students are always invited to take part. The experience of travel and the friendships and partnerships forged are one of the cornerstones for TRY’s international future.


I’ve been a part of TRY for five years and it’s become my second home. When I started I was a quite and shy thirteen year old and I graduated from TRY totally different. TRY theatre has taught me so much, how to stand up for myself, not to be afraid of challenges, and open up to the world.
