The first of the four key components of MTC’s Sharing the Light initiative, supported by Crown Resorts Foundation, has begun rolling out with $5 tickets to all MTC mainstage and education productions now available to eligible schools.
The Crown Resorts’ Student Theatre Pass provides disadvantaged schools across the state, who perhaps otherwise wouldn’t have access to mainstage theatre, with subsidised $5 tickets to experience live productions from Victoria’s flagship theatre company.
Over 250 secondary schools across Victoria have been contacted with the offer, which also grants access to $5 tickets for designated pre-show talks to further enhance students’ experience and understanding of theatre. Schools in outlying areas can also apply for a travel cost subsidy, further reducing geographical disadvantage so often faced by regional schools.
