The main venue on the College campus, Curtin Theatre seats 456 and is superbly equipped for drama, dance and musical performances. This theatre is ideal for teaching young people and developing their understanding of performance spaces, allowing them to experience all aspects of high quality performance production including front of house, costume and set design and stage management. Students also practice and perform in the more intimate black box Ellen Street Theatre and the open-air amphitheatre, developing their knowledge of how performance spaces can influence their creative work.

Our Year 8 quadrangle has become the stage for scheduled lunchtime concerts, outdoors performance arts and events such as the costume competition held during our yearly ‘Fandom Day’. We are further developing this space by increasing its size and incorporating a cover, offering protection for both audiences and students.

We are excited to announce that we will be constructing a state-of-the-art Music and Media Centre on campus to be completed in 2024. The new precinct will include two double-height orchestra rooms, eight sound-proof practice rooms, instrument storage space and an outdoor courtyard stage area with ocean views. This new facility will enhance the learning experience for students with its exceptional acoustics and innovative design as well as provide another inspiring creative arts performance space.
