Flinders University has made the devastating decision to discontinue and phase out the Bachelor of Creative Arts (Drama) aka The Drama Centre. For over 50 years, Flinders Drama Centre has trained and produced Australia's most dynamic and successful actors, who have brought us Adelaide's most cherished performances and Theatre Companies. A new unspecialised course will be replacing the DC, one that is incomparable, providing nowhere near the right training or classes that are required to become a trained professional. By cutting one of Australia's highest quality Drama schools, and the only one of its kind in Adelaide, not only are Flinders University forcing our artists to leave Adelaide to study elsewhere, but the future of the arts community in South Australia will diminish dramatically over the next few years.
