Welcome to the Centre for Theatre and Performance

We offer one of the most comprehensive theatre and performance programs of any Australian university, enjoying a reputation as one of the most outstanding courses of its kind in the country.

Our degrees explore theatre and performance in theory and practice. We have two strands, one aims to create theatre-makers and the other explores different historical and contemporary performance traditions and practices. In both we focus on the study of the past, present and future of the performance.

We strive to achieve a balance between performance opportunities and a challenging academic program.
