TAS Academy @ klpac


Founded by Dato’ Dr. Faridah Merican and Joe Hasham OAM, The Actors Studio Academy is a pioneer in arts education in Malaysia. Its alumni comprises theatre luminaries and the crème de la crème of the industry today.

With a clear pathway for children through to adults, learn from artiste-educators with hands-on experience in the industry and enjoy direct access to klpac’s full range of facilities.


The semester-based, year-long programme introduces students to the magic of storytelling, exercises their imagination, prepares them to perform for an audience in a group and by themselves.

We offer other short-term courses such as acting for beginners, as well as a fun-filled school holiday programme.

Whether its public speaking skills, creative thinking or team building, our unique arts-based corporate training programme is transformational, inspirational and, most of all, fun!
