Southern Highlands Youth Arts Council

When you perform live on stage,
anything is possible.

SHYAC is the place for young performers of the Southern Highlands to explore the stage. Acting, writing, and exploring the art of live performance with their peers while being led by highly experienced mentors.

Every year we offer short-form and long-term opportunities to take part in SHYAC productions.
