We are thrilled to be presenting Victorian audiences with the Australian premiere of Amelia Bullmore’s acclaimed play, Di and Viv and Rose. Led by award-winning director and great friend Marion Potts, this heart-warming tale of enduring friendship stars three of the most accomplished women on stage and screen: Nadine Garner, Belinda McClory and Mandy McElhinney.
At MTC we champion women working in all areas of the sector and are proud to run an industry-leading Women in Theatre Program. Since its inception in 2014 we have supported 32 women across a range of disciplines from directing to dramaturgy and stage management. With support from Donors in our Women in Theatre Giving Circle, the annual program provides participants with career development opportunities, mentors within the industry and a chance to learn about the inner workings of a major performing arts organisation. It is a fantastic program dedicated to supporting local talent and promoting women in the industry.
With such immense talent attached to this production it is little wonder that Di and Viv and Rose was among the most subscribed plays in our 2017 season. Its houses filled up in a flash, and with our Season 2018 announcement on Monday 28 August it is a timely reminder that being a Subscriber is the best way to lock in great seats at an exclusive price before they go on sale to the public.
Whether you’re new to the Company or already among our wonderful community of Subscribers, take this insider trading tip – get your Season 2018 subscriptions in quickly, as next year is going to be a cracker and you won’t want to miss a moment.
