Welcome to The Centre PAC.

We are The Centre Performing Arts College, the small college with big aspirations. We believe our first class facilities, the inspirational teaching skills of our core staff, wide range of regular workshops with industry creatives and small class sizes, ensures our students have every opportunity of reaching their full potential.

Our results are testament to the calibre of work currently being produced at the college with over 97% of students gaining professional work as a direct result of our training. Whether you are a prospective student looking to learn more about what we can offer, a parent/guardian looking for advice, or simply here to browse the latest photos and videos of our students and the productions we are involved in, you will find all the information you need on our website.

The Centre PAC is the best thing to happen to me. I have grown in so many ways over the past three years and it’s all thanks to this college.
