Who are we?

The Mornington Peninsula Performing Arts Centre (MPPAC) is the new home of Billy Lids Theatre Company and is located in Hastings, on the Mornington Peninsula. Billy Lids gives children an opportunity to learn the necessary skills to perform in children’s theatre productions. Our main focus is to give performance experience to children with a keen interest in the performing arts. At Billy Lids, not only do we learn about dance, drama and singing, we also learn about theatre etiquette and terminology.

Artistic Director Annette Precht strongly believes that Billy Lids is a place where children can make new friends and have fun while singing, dancing and learning valuable life and performance skills that will help them greatly in all aspects of their lives. We hope to encourage and inspire young people to pursue their dreams of working in the theatre industry as well as to provide many opportunities for personal growth.

Music and dance are a fantastic way for young people to build confidence, gain self esteem and express themselves and we at Billy Lids seek to promote this through our fantastic programs.
