centrED is raising the curtain on a brand new 'stage' in educational programming with Musical Theatre Magic. This day-long adventure is designed to meet the soaring demand for school-based musical theatre programs. 

Students will "defy gravity" learning from industry professionals in an ensemble of workshops, inspiring guest speeches, and artist Q&As. 

Through a series of practical dancing, singing and acting workshops students will learn to “give ‘em the old razzle dazzle” guided by musical theatre experts. 

"Prepare Ye" for a day where musical memories last forever, with each student getting a chance to shine in their own unique way.  

After all, as Pippin says, “We’ve got magic to do”! 

For schools

centrED encourages teacher participation in these workshops to increase student participation. Teachers hold the duty of care and must supervise their attending students at all times. 

Participants (students and teachers) are required to wear clothing that allows uninhibited movement (i.e. PE uniforms). 

The day is busy, so we ask that all students and teachers bring their recess, lunch, and a water bottle to refill as there will not be the opportunity to leave the centre.
