Theatre is one of the oldest and most influential of art forms. It brings people together through the telling of stories, enabling participants to combine interpersonal skills with intrapersonal awareness. At Loreto Toorak, the Theatre Studies program provides great inspiration and enrichment for students. It gifts them with practical and communication skills that can be applied to life beyond the classroom. Students have a range of exciting opportunities to learn about theatre practices and they are encouraged to be ambitious and professional in their approach and outcomes. The authentic experience of creating theatre and presenting it to an audience can be transformational for students and is often a highlight of their time at school.
