Melbourne Theatre Company is where stories come alive. For over 65 years as Victoria’s State Theatre Company, MTC has created exceptional theatre, sharing the power of live storytelling with generations of Australians.
Under the leadership of Artistic Director & CEO Brett Sheehy AO and Executive Director & Co-CEO Virginia Lovett, MTC embodies the creative spirit that Melbourne and Victoria are renowned for, bringing remarkable theatre to the fore to inspire, entertain, challenge and enrich the lives of audiences.
Since its foundation in 1953, MTC has been at the forefront of Australian culture, introducing new ideas and new ways of looking at our lives, our society and the world around us. Today, with Southbank Theatre as MTC’s performance home and a selection of performances staged at Arts Centre Melbourne, MTC continues to present Melbourne audiences with the best theatre from Australia and overseas to the highest international standards.
MTC’s industry-leading NEXT STAGE Writers’ Program champions Australian writers by providing a level of support and investment greater than ever before. Now in the third year of the program, there are currently 25 writers under commission or in residence with MTC. In 2020, four NEXT STAGE commissions feature in MTC’s season.
