We have an Annual Showcase each year at the Civic Theatre Newcastle and hold only ONE major rehearsal.
Costumes are hired at a VERY reasonable $16.50 each, which means there is NO SEWING. Check out our gallery to see some of our costumes.
All concert and group photography is FREE and there is NO FUND-RAISING.
All students who participate in our Annual Showcase receive a beautiful trophy on Presentation Day.
Our academy also offers one full paid scholarship each year, this is awarded at our Annual Showcase.
