Musical Theatre Productions

Love singing, dancing and acting your heart out on stage? Join one of our musical theatre productions! In recent years we have performed licensed junior versions of Cats, The Sound of Music, Annie, Shrek, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Peter Pan, and many more. Students get their own copy of the script and songs, and perform in full costume in a theatrical environment.

Where: Canberra and North Brisbane

Screen Ready Program

Screen Ready is for those kids who just want to be on screen! In this class you'll learn how to act for the camera, as well as be involved in some other aspects of filmmaking. This is a great class for those kids looking to explore this art form or get the screen experience they need to apply for an agent.

Where: Currently available in North Lakes, QLD.

School Holiday Programs

Can't bear to miss out on drama during the school hols? Never fear, we have a range of programs available! Workshops range from two- or three-day programs with performance outcomes, right through to short, one-off taster workshops on a range of topics. No experience is necessary.

Where: Currently offered at our studio in Griffith, ACT.

Full-time School Options

The Thrive Program (Years 7-10)

Is your child a keen performer? Are you looking for a different high school experience for your teen? Take a look at our Thrive Program, for Years 7-10. Complete academic subjects via distance education with our partner school and face-to-face performing arts classes on campus with us in Griffith ACT.

The Young Professionals Program (Years 11-12)

In this unique program, you can study a 10915NAT Certificate IV in Acting and a 11017NAT Advanced Diploma of Performance alongside your Year 12 Certificate - or, instead of your Year 12 Certificate, as suits you. Currently running now in Griffith ACT, we're also taking expressions of interest for Brisbane in 2024.

Private Lessons

Singing Lessons

If your child wants to improve their singing skills, private lessons are available at our Griffith campus in the ACT, after school and on Saturdays. Students work one-on-one with an experienced tutor and work on all aspects of vocal development. Some performance opportunities are available through the year.

Private Actor Coaching

If your young person has a Year 12 drama assessment coming up, or a school or drama school audition around the corner, and they'd like some extra help preparing, you may like to consider some sessions of private coaching. These can be conducted one-on-one at our studio in Griffith ACT or via Zoom anywhere in Australia. You will work with a professional actor to get the best results.

What parents say about our classes

"Studying drama has been tremendous for our son Caelan's self-confidence, his imagination and added greatly to his boundless sense of fun!"

- Craig

"Our daughter has been attending here for three years now.  The programs, both weekly and school holiday programs, have been outstanding.  She has developed some wonderful skills and confidence. Drama is her thing, her place where she can just be herself.  Thank you to all the staff who have had such a positive influence in her development."

- Dominique

"My daughter was really keen to attend Perform but on her first night was so nervous I couldn't even get her through the door. One of the girls in the class came outside and was so lovely and reassuring that my daughter finally went in. At the end of the class she was so excited and happy and said she wished the class went for two hours! ... I would highly recommend Perform Australia to any parent considering an acting class for their child. They are very professional and will instill in your child a real sense of confidence."

- Jo
