Myriad Centre For The Arts, located in the Old Perth Shoe Factory on Sherbrooke St., is the new home of the Perth Academy of Musical Theatre, Orion Theatre Company and the recently launched Love of Literature Academy. It has long been a dream of founder, Heidi Stepanek, to develop a multi-arts facility in Perth, and she and her husband, Peter Dixon, have been working extremely hard over the past few years to make it a reality. Taking a measured approach to developing the Centre has meant that this arts-based business- a rare type of venture with many challenges, has been able to remain viable and continue to develop an important niche in Perth's extensive artistic community

Calling all adults and teens who love to be on stage, or who have always wanted to try their hand at performing!  This is a wonderful opportunity to get out and do some singing, acting and dancing, put on some costumes, learn new skills, meet some wonderful new people, and just have fun!
