Theatre Arts at Curtin University is Western Australia’s longest running tertiary theatre programme, providing training for Western Australian theatre makers since 1973.

Students at Curtin study a range of units that build the theatre maker’s toolkit exploring approaches to acting, devising, dramaturgy, directing, movement, voice and technical theatre.

Operating out of the ‘new’ Hayman Theatre, a flexible 50-90 seat theatre space that replicates industry standard equipment in all technical departments, the on-campus Hayman Theatre Company produces well over 100 performances a year.
