Proposed 2017 USA Performing Arts Tour

An exciting development is being proposed for the Co-Curricular Performing Arts at St Patrick’s College.

We are planning to take at least 13 students on a Performing Arts Tour to New York City in the 2017 Term One school holidays (Thursday March 30 – Tuesday April 11). The tour is offered to students who are currently in Years 9, 10 and 11.

The tour itinerary is being developed with G.E.T Educational Tours, Australia’s largest and most experienced educational tour provider. The tour will feature a range of opportunities for the students involved including the chance to participate in three acting workshops with Broadway professionals, the opportunity to attend two Broadway shows and the chance to visit many of the famous New York City landmarks.

Further information regarding the proposed itinerary, tour logistics and costs involved can be viewed in the booklet below.

Anyone needing more details is urged to contact our Head of Co-Curricular Performance Mr Greg Shawcross at gshawcross@stpats.vic.edu.au .
