Built originally as a gracious family house, Charters Towers became home to the Bush Davies School of Theatre Arts during the second World War. Pupils came from around the country to study a wide range of theatre disciplines, alongside academic qualifications.
in 1967, the school opened the Adeline Gennee Theatre on the site and world renowned ballet dancers including Dame Margot Fonteyn and Rudolph Nureyev performed there.
The School closed in the late 1980s but it is still remembered fondly. A reunion in 2010 attracted more than a hundred former pupils keen to perform the schools trademark Grand Defile once more before the sites transformation in Charters Village began.
