Top Class puts the spotlight on the creativity and sophistication of VCE performing arts students from across Victoria.

Enjoy original and scripted dramatic monologues and production design demonstrating the imagination and originality of emerging actors and theatre makers.

Top Class Drama and Theatre Studies concerts present performances by inspirational students who received outstanding grades for their 2021 VCE performance examinations. These entertaining and informative 100-minute programs are hosted by the Chief Assessors for each study, who will provide tips and advice along the way. Drama students present inventive original solo works, while Theatre Studies students present diverse interpretations of existing monologues through direction and acting, or two areas of design.
