Fees

Your fees are based on the amount you earn from acting. If you earn most of your income from other work, you could be eligible to pay the reduced rate.

The reduced rate is for actors who earn less than $15 000 per year from acting. Juvenile actors (under 17) pay a further reduced amount.

The free student membership is for full-time final year acting students only, for one year only. There is no free student membership for all three years of study, for those students in a three year course. All students’ free membership ends in the March after your course finishes. If you are a student, you must supply your bank details in order to be activated as an Equity member, even though you will only be debited in March of the year after your course ends.

Please choose the correct rate from the table.
