MTC’s Women in Theatre Program provides the opportunity for participants to be mentored by respected theatre practitioners; take part in intensive leadership training; access practical career advice and coaching across a wide range of business and commercial aspects of the theatre industry; and gain insights to the daily operation of a major performing arts organisation.

The Women in Theatre Program is designed to address the ever-changing needs of the sector and in 2019 we particularly encourage applications from women working in Creative Technical Design and other technical roles.
