MTC's Production Processes

Through the lens of VCE Theatre Studies, explore the lifecycle of an MTC production. Students learn about what MTC staff and artists do in the planning, development and presentation stages, with concrete examples of tasks and duties. The workshop is presentation-style, with interactive questions throughout, and a concluding activity where students creatively interpret unusual script excerpts in each stage. Where possible, a guest from the MTC production department will join for a Q&A.

Mode of delivery: Zoom (or your school's preferred platform where possible)
