The two Musical Theatre Courses are the only accredited training programs in Australia housed within a major performing arts venue (Hayward Street Studios), which is also the home of Queensland’s only professional musical theatre company, Harvest Rain. Students are afforded the opportunity to train in the same venue where some of Australia’s biggest musical theatre stars are rehearsing and performing, and the students regularly benefit from a range of formal and informal encounters with these luminaries. Please note the accredited training will not be offered through Creating Links in 2021.
