Hi Everyone! We hope you had an enjoyable few weeks at MPAC this year. We were completely blown away with the amount of talent displayed across all age groups and not to mention the amazing respect each performer had for their fellow competitors. It was great to see the many friendships formed over the last few weekends

Information for 2018 will be sorted in the coming months and all entrants and schools from this year will be emailed an information pack.

The team at MPAC ...would like to wish you all a big "Chookas" for the rest of your comp season and upcoming Concerts!

Hi All! Hope you're all having an enjoyable day of performing or preparing to perform!!
Just a quick announcement that we have been running slightly ahead of schedule, therefore please be prepared and allow yourself plenty of arrival time to ensure you don't miss out on your performance. The times provided on the schedule are to be used as an indication only and it is based on all competitors being present. If we have a handful of "no-show" competitors, this will put us ahead of schedule.
If we are more than 30-45min ahead of schedule, we will take a break to catch up on time.

Looking forward to seeing all the performers! Have a great day - The MPAC Team
