Based on the cherished New Line Cinema hit, Elf JR. features songs by Tony Award-nominees, Matthew Sklar and Chad Beguelin, with a book by Tony Award-winners, Thomas Meehan and Bob Martin.
Buddy, a young orphan, mistakenly crawls into Santa's bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole. The would-be elf is raised, unaware that he is actually a human, until his enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to face the truth. With Santa's permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father and discover his true identity. Faced with the harsh reality that his father is on the naughty list and that his half-brother doesn't even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas.
Performed by our musical theatre students, aged 9-15.

The Balcony by Jean Genet
Performed by the Advanced Diploma of Performance students
Genet's horrifying vision in 'The Balcony' has aroused violent controversy... The setting is a brothel in the midst of a revolution that has wiped out all the real holders of power except the Chief of Police, who now enlists the regular customers to play out the fantasy roles that destiny has denied them. In macabre, climactic scenes, the playwright develops his mocking view of man and society.
Join Perform Australia's Advanced Diploma of Performance students for this dark piece from the Absurdist tradition of theatre.
