Gillian Moore Centre for Performing Arts
Opened in 2005 and named in honour of Mrs Gillian Moore AO, the College’s Principal from 1989 to 2007, Pymble’s 750-seat performing arts centre features world-class, professional facilities.
The stylish centre features an auditorium, orchestra pit, fly tower and backstage assembly and preparation space suitable for productions of all sizes, concerts and musicals. Its state-of-the-art theatrical lighting and sound facilities stamp Secondary and Junior School productions and the Preparatory School Concert with a distinct professionalism. Secondary girls are invited to master the use of these facilities through theatre design, technical and front-of-house roles. The centre is also used for assemblies, lectures and presentations.
A large rehearsal room is used primarily by large music ensembles but includes features to accommodate dance and drama rehearsals. A smaller studio space is ideally suited to drama teaching and small ensemble rehearsals. Both rooms share adjacent recording facilities.
Classes, meetings, group work and casual performances are known to spontaneously occur upon the centre’s innovative stairs, while its spacious first floor is used for training, instruction and functions that seat up to 120 people.
