The path to stardom is a challenging one, requiring dedication and hard work. However, when aspirations become a reality, it makes all the effort worth it. Two highly skilled and industrious students of the Dance and Theatre Factory (TDTF) have recently achieved success in the professional performing arts industry.

Eva Rose McMurray (13) has landed her first professional contract to perform the leading role in ‘Mia Muddle – A Forest Tale’ at the Brisbane Entertainment and Convention Centre in January 2024. Alessia Monteverde (12) was named the Arts Person of the Year 2023 Runner-up at the recent Bright Star awards.

The Dance and Theatre Factory is dedicated to preparing its students for the future of the performing arts industry. It offers training, information, and performance opportunities to help its students further develop their skills, confidence, and personality. In 2023, TDTF staged seven musicals and showcases, including ‘Frozen Jr,’ ‘Chicago,’ ‘The Addams Family,’ ‘Seussical Jr,’ and ‘Aladdin Jr.’ With each show, students had the chance to hone their technical skills and further develop their performance style.

TDTF caters to students of all ages, ranging from two years of age to adults. Whether you are aspiring to reach for the stars or just want to have fun, there are suitable classes on offer alongside performance opportunities. Classes in dance include jazz, tap, ballet, contemporary, lyrical, hip hop, and acrobatics, as well as acting, drama, and singing. TDTF also provides qualifications and training packages tailored to aspiring professional performers.

The year 2024 kicks off with a summer holiday workshop and production of ‘Newsies Jr,’ running from January 11 to 20. To inquire about classes or training packages for 2024, visit
