Fun

From our Centrestage Creative Learning activities to our Centrestage Productions, there is so much fun to be had with us across our projects. We now welcome over 2,500 participants across our projects and activities each week.

Creative Learning

Creative Learning is at the heart of everything we do at Centrestage.

Open to all ages and abilities, we have something for everyone…beginners to advanced…..toddlers to grannies (and grandads!) Our extensive program includes classes in Musical Theatre, Dance Theatre, Acting, Vocal, Additional Support Needs, Pre-School and Technical Theatre.

No audition is required and you can join a class at any time throughout the year. Our various Creative Learning classes all have associated production outcomes in our very own custom built 200 seat theatre.

So join us…and get involved!
