The Performing Arts sector at St Mary’s has our campus literally humming with creativity for all students from Reception to Year 12. Amongst theatre, film, media, dance groups, ensembles, bands, and choirs, more than two-thirds of our students participate in our Performing Arts programs. Almost 300 weekly individual tuition lessons are dedicated to our Performing Arts, encouraging students to engage with our annual College musical, regional and interstate trips and competitions and overseas tours.
Amongst being a vibrant and engaging environment for our students, participants of St Mary’s Performing Arts are given access to experiences of, and professionals working within, creative industries. Students are provided with the opportunity to create, design, represent, communicate, and share conceptual ideas, emotions, observations, and experiences. Most St Mary’s productions are staged at our state-of-the-art theatre, the College Centre for Performing Arts. The Centre houses a 168-seat theatre, a digital production suite, rehearsal spaces and a green room.
