Alumni & Industry
For 60 years, NIDA has selected only the most talented individuals from the thousands of aspiring actors, designers and technicians who audition for a place every year.
NIDA’s graduates have had national and international impact and have made significant contributions to Australia’s theatre, screen and creative industries. Our graduates are recognised, not only for their success on stage and behind the scenes, but also for their dedication to Australia’s cultural fabric. They have played a major role in telling Australian stories from the 1960s to the present day.
