Opened in 2000, the Lady Wardle Performing Arts Centre is host to a wonderful array of school events including plays, concerts, debates, dance productions, assemblies and lectures. With a 515 seat auditorium, the latest in staging, lighting and sound equipment, it provides a fitting venue for our students' performances.

Hiring the Performing Arts Centre

When the Centre is not being used by the school it is available for hire. Just 20 minutes from the centre of Perth and situated in the beautiful grounds of St Mary’s, the venue caters for anything from small community groups to large corporate events including conferences, product launches, weddings, theatre and dance events, award ceremonies, rehearsals, showcases, auditons and filming and photographic shoots.

The centre has a highly experienced technical team, as well as state-of-the-art performance, recording and presentation equipment, which provides clients with stunning theatrical effects and cost-effective events.

The auditorium comfortably seats 515 people. The backstage studios are ideal for seminars, music rehearsal rooms and dressing rooms. There is also an adjoining dance studio, available for separate hire.
