School Holiday Programs

Our next Senior Holiday Program will be announced in September 2018

In January 2016, our students performed a vibrant and fun adaptation of The Wiz called Ease on Down the Road. In February 2017, our students performed in the foot tapping classic, Singin’ in the Rain Jr for the Adelaide Fringe. The show was nominated for the 2016/2017 Best Show ‘Youth Theatre’ for the Adelaide Theatre Guide ‘Curtain Call’ Awards. While in March 2018, the students terrifically terrified audiences with the horror rock comedy musical Little Shop of Horrors. This was also nominated for the 2017/2018 Best Show ‘Youth Theatre’ for the Adelaide Theatre Guide ‘Curtain Call’ Awards.

In 2019, we are excited to announce our next Adelaide Fringe production of Oliver!

Additional programs are coming soon.
