Event Details


In 2019, we’re excited to start our teaching artist workshop program! We know that not every show that comes through the centre relates to your teaching program, hence why we’re becoming more flexible! With teaching artists from our in house companies including Riptide, Maxima and Pulse, we have a wide range of knowledgeable performers and directors that are able to come and work with your students. Our teaching artists are covered under our insurance policy, and have WWCC’s.

We’ll be keeping our Sound and Lighting Workshops by the wonderful MANPAC Tech Team, plus we will present a range of workshops with the touring companies coming through!

Lighting and Sound Workshops (In Centre or School Venue)$15 per student, per hourMinimum ten students
Teaching Artist Workshops$200 – 1 hour workshop,
$300 – 2 hour workshop
Maximum 25 students per teaching artist

Exhibition TalksFreeMinimum 10 students, Maximum 50 students

Bus Subsidy

The Mandurah Performing Arts Centre is committed to help teachers provide students with meaningful and purposeful arts experiences. This bus subsidy can fund up to 50% of a school’s bus costs, and has been funded by the MANPAC Patron’s program and provides financial support to cover transportation costs to attend MANPAC Making Waves program performances.

Once received, the application is review and the outcome of your application will be provided by email. Please read the terms and conditions carefully before completing your application.

Teacher Tickets / Teacher PL’s and Industry Nights

Sometimes you just need a night off at the theatre, without your students! In 2019, all teachers will receive $25 tickets to any of the Making Waves Program shows! Just quote the code word “Stressed Out” when booking your tickets. (Max two tickets per booking)

We’ll also keep an eye out for upcoming Professional Learning opportunities to do with Arts & Education from the touring and state production companies. As soon as we hear about them, you’ll be the first to know. Do you need something specific? Talk to us, and we’ll talk to our guys.

Or, come and join for a pressure free networking night. We’ll provide a cheeky glass of wine, or a saving cup of coffee (and of course a snack or two!), and a ticket to see a show for free! No need to prep an activity or spiel, just bring yourself for a good night out.

Young Ambassadors

The Young Ambassadors program is a new program for passionate Year 10-12 Students in both the Performing and Visual Arts. The program is intended as an opportunity to explore and think critically about the arts, providing context and knowledge to young people keen to make a career in the area. The Young Ambassadors program has closed its applications for 2019, but will re-open in September 2019 for the year 2020!

Young Ushers

The Friends of the Mandurah Performing Arts Centre have a base of 600 volunteers. We’re looking to expand this base of volunteers to a new youth team, who would usher and learn the ropes on the centre! If you’ve got a student who would like to know more about these Front of House Volunteer positions be sure to let us know!

Work Experience / Internship

The Mandurah Performing Arts Centre is committed to Engaging, Responding, Connecting and partnering with our communities young people. We host a limited number of young people for work experience placements and internships each year.

Youth Fest

In May 2019, MANPAC is turning itself over to the young people of Mandurah for 3 days of non-stop entertainment– an experience of contemporary shows, art, music, food and dance parties. With a focus on discounted tickets to shows, workshops, artist talks and all local content, this festival is a big party for and by young people. Teaming up with Riptide Youth Performance Company, Pulse Circus, RahCon Popular Culture Convention, local musicians and Headspace, this is one party not to be missed! If you’d like to know more about volunteering or stall opportunities please let us know.
