WAAPA's annual performance program offers students hands-on experience and industry simulated experience on fully staged productions and concerts. Opera, ballet, contemporary dance seasons, theatre, musicals, live concerts and events (jazz, rock, classical) and even the chance to assist the WA Screen Academy students in the production of their short films.
