PERTH COURSES, ENROLMENT FORM and NEWS
If you are enjoying Perth M.A.L.A. please tell your friends, (and if you are not, please email to help your committee to remedy any deficiencies!)
Remember to keep scrolling all the way down to read the full page of useful Perth information!
Please volunteer to help us!
We are seeking an additional volunteer to help out at the MALA Information Desk at GBLC on Friday mornings during our two 5-week series of courses each semester.
Please consider helping - it’s not onerous, but it helps to make MALA the welcoming and smoothly functioning lecture program for seniors that has made it so very popular over the last 43 years!
If interested, please contact our chairman, Julie, on 0498 560 026.
We also need everyday members to consider stepping up to support the continuation of Perth MALA by nominating for our committee in 2024. Please talk with one of our present committee (photos & names towards the very bottom of this page) about what is involved.

Home to the likes of iconic Aussie performers including Hugh Jackman, Frances O’Connor, Lucy Durack, Tim Minchin and Lisa McCune, this tour of WAAPA takes you both backstage and on stage: you are shown through Props and Scenery, Lighting or Costume workshops and visit a Music, Theatre or Dance class.
There will also be a Q&A with a WAAPA representative.
Morning tea is included in your ticket price. You may purchase a light lunch on campus or bring your own.
After lunch you get to enjoy a free concert in the Richard Gill Auditorium.

You will need to arrange your own transport and meet at WAAPA —2 Bradford St, Mt Lawley by 8.30am. Parking is free (a parking voucher will be provided.)
Cost is $47 per person.
Of course we may not get to see all the shenanigans that go on in the dressing rooms?
This is Nola Formentin (WAAPA graduate1990) about to go on as Reverend Mother in a stage production of 'The Sound of Music'!
(Nola is apparently a renowned baritone, but a little helium goes a long way — in fact, octaves!)
