The Centre: The workshops run in a secure, prestigeous and safe campus at The University of Queensland (St Lucia campus in Brisbane)


Resident Tutors: We have a highly reputable team of resident teachers and tutors giving first class tuition in the various facets of music-theatre over the 15 day program.
