About Us

The Australian Institute of TheatreSports® was officially formed early 1996 however it had been operating through Sanderson-Green Personal Development Consultants since 1989. It was was founded when Michael and Angela Sanderson-Green identified a need for creative leaning opportunities for people of all ages. They wanted to create an environment where individuals can learn and grow in a safe but challenging way. Their love of drama and their belief that everyone can achieve greatness motivated them to design and deliver these programs to groups across all spectrums of abilities and cultural backgrounds.

The companys Mission Statement is to promote, teach and develop improvised acting skills with people of all ages and abilities in a way that develops meaningful life skills in a fun learning environment.

The work of Gary Kielhofner became popular in the field of Occupational Therapy in the 1980s. His Model of Human Occupation was an ideal framework for Angela and Michael, who each have a B. Applied Science (Occupational Therapy) to apply to their work with students of all ages and abilities.

All training is conducted by Angela and Michael who not only use their Occupational Therapy background but also trained as actors at Chimera Acting School.

They now work extensively throughout the state and overseas with schools and community groups conducting programmes with an emphasis on communication, team work and self esteem.
