Marian St Theatre for Young People

The Ultimate Drama Day

Currently enrolling in tandem with the production of Pearlie in the Park - July School Holidays

Is your child bursting with creative energy, or hiding a creative spirit inside? Learning about theatre as a craft helps children delve into the essence of imagination and human interaction - it's often a magical experience...and fun at the same time! However it's often hard to find age-appropriate theatre at an affordable cost.

We've created an educational, cost-effective and magical way to introduce your children to the theatre. We are so excited to be launching the Ultimate Drama Day these July school holidays in tandem with Pearlie in the Park for 5 – 10 years.


BONUS - If you've attended the show, free tea and coffee while you wait for them to finish the workshop. Also, if they would like to join the weekly drama classes, then no new student transaction fees.



Times            10am – 1pm in the first week of the school holidays

Location          Knox Cultural Centre, Wahroonga (the workshop takes place in a room right next to the performance space)

Ages               5 - 7 and 8 - 11 years workshops available

Cost               $95 (including the book, $105. Additional tickets $19 each)

10:00am             Meet your Drama Expert in the Drama Room (aim to arrive at least 5 mins before, have a look for the sign in the foyer or ask for directions from the box office) and learn a bit more about theatre before the performance - what to expect, what happens when the lights come up and more

10:30am            Performance starts! First Act

11:00am           Interval - pack a snack if you'd like (no nuts please), or buy from the snack bar if you'd prefer

11:15am            Second Act

11:45am           Meet the actors! Get your book signed if you'd like. Take a quick break for a snack and a relax

12pm                Meet back at the Drama Room for a workshop with your Drama Expert

1pm                  Drama workshop finishes - if it's a fine day, you're welcome to stay in the outdoor area outside the foyer and have a picnic


My child is too young/ too old for the workshop - can they join?

All participants must be at least 5 yrs old and in school to join. We need to keep the age range quite small, so please enrol in the appropriate workshop. If you're unsure, please do give the office a call to discuss: 9411 1800

Can I book multiple children in?

Yes, of course! Just make sure to fill out the form for each child and add them to your cart. That way you can pay for them all at the same time. Please be aware of the age range if you are booking siblings in who are of different ages.

Do I need to come, or can I just drop them off?

You can drop them off, or you can come! If you would like to attend (or even bring extra family members) you can purchase tickets for a discounted rate of $19. The workshop with the Drama Expert is just for children, but you are welcome to wait in the foyer if you would like (we do coffee from the snack bar).

What happens if I need to cancel?

All bookings are final. We may be able to move the date of the workshop, subject to availability.

Please read our terms and conditions.

Where is the Knox Cultural Centre?

The Knox Cultural Centre is located within the Knox School grounds. There is easy, free underground carparking right next to the venue itself (enter via Borambil Street), and it is a short walk from Warrawee Train Station. Please see the map below:
