Discover insights into the theatre-making process in our interactive workshops. 2021 workshops to be announced soon.
We strive to make creative, theatrical experiences accessible to all students in Victoria. Thanks to generous donors we are able to offer free or low-cost workshops to a limited number of regional students in 2021.
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.
Suitable for: Year 10+
Duration: 90min (can be tailored to your timetable)
Mode of delivery: Zoom (or your school's preferred platform where possible)
Cost: A limited number of these workshops are available free to regional schools
Bookings: email firstname.lastname@example.org with your preferred dates/times, your school name, and number of students, and we'll be in touch.
