The College offers an excellent Drama program, benefitting from high quality facilities and a reputation for outstanding productions, supporting the thriving Arts program, and gives all students an opportunity to become involved. Students participate in a range of industry led incursions, including stage combat, Commedia Dell’arte and Black Swan Theatre Company masterclasses and internships. In addition, students attend excursions to Crown Theatre, His Majesty’s Theatre, The State Theatre and Perth Concert Hall.
