Talented students across the region, with a creative inclination for performing, have come together for the annual drama camp.
Experienced theatre professionals from around the country and drama teachers have guided 106 students from 14 public high schools in performance skills workshops.
Wagga High School's drama teacher Iain Wright said the group makes up the most promising young actors in the region.
"There are some kids who I would not be surprised if we saw them on the big screen in a few years, but they're all very talented," Mr Wright said.
"It's an opportunity for country kids...to work with industry professionals and other teachers from around the Riverina to really get a full experience.
"This is something these kids usually don't get, unlike their city counterparts who can interact with other schools and have professional actors there all the time to train and play with."
Students will be learning a range of skills, including theatre, improvisation, screen testing and learning how to audition and create a showreel as well as stage combat.
WHS year 10 student Ashley Haining, 15, said it is her first time at the camp and is among eight other students from her school.
"It's really fun, everyone is really accepting and I just love it," she said. "I like script work and having a set thing and being able to perform that character."
For one of Ashley's peers Tara Kelleher, 15, it was her second time at the drama camp.
"Each year you make a few new friends and I've really enjoyed hanging out with new people and catching up with old friends," she said.
"I've really enjoyed play building with my group and we brainstormed heaps of ideas and I think the end performance will be really fun, because our piece is quite extravagant.
"I would like to be an actress after school, but the bars are pretty high."
Camp coordinator Anni Gifford, from Albury's James Fallon High, said this drama camp is a highlight of not just students, but also drama teachers as well.
"We've got a huge range of experience levels, but students who are all super engaged and excited about being here," she said.
"We have a number of professional tutors who have come back after being campers themselves.
"The biggest thing, is that this takes up a really big space in the heart of drama students across the Riverina and is something that they look forward to throughout the year and something drama teachers do too."
Ms Gifford said it's not just an opportunity for regional students to collaborate, but also teachers.
"The drama teachers based out of the schools that are here, look forward to it in the same way, because they get to spend time with the kids who are so keen and excited to be here," she said.
"The drama teachers here are from quite regional and remote areas so a lot of the professional development opportunities are usually in Sydney or Melbourne, so we miss out on a lot.
"The power of congregating in a space, even if it's a centre which doesn't really have the facilities we need, it just shows that it's all about will and skill and enthusiasm and when like minded people bond together, professionals and students, they can make pretty amazing stuff happen."
