Showfit - Musical Theatre Course, Melbourne

  • Do you know you can dance but are terrified to sing?
  • Do you know you can sing but need help moving?
  • Do you know you can sing and dance but need help with the acting?
  • Do you purely have a passion for Musical Theatre and believe you can do it?


A Centrestage initiative, Showfit is a 12 month fulltime Musical Theatre course for students with a strong skill base in performing arts and an openness to developing all three areas of acting, singing and dancing equally. The notion of becoming a triple threat is the driving thread throughout the year. Directors, Simon Gleeson and Leanne White lead respected industry professionals from both Australia and overseas to provide the very best all round training.

Showfit offers the perfect means to develop the performer’s craft to increase confidence and skills. Mid year, students take part in a studio-based showing of their work that encompasses all three disciplines and then work with professional directors/musical directors/choreographers towards an end of year showcase presented at The Malthouse Theatre to friends & family, general public, prospective agents, casting agents and industry professionals.

Directors: Scott Johnson and Leanne White
Musical Director: Mathew Frank Course Advisor: Ian White
