To be eligible for a Melbourne Theatre Company Industry Pass, you must be a practising professional theatre practitioner residing in Victoria.

We define a ‘practising professional’ as someone who has dedicated their career to roles in live theatre, while understanding that other employment at times may be necessary to sustain a freelance career.

For the eligibility of this pass, we define ‘theatre practitioner’ to include actors / performers; creative artists (eg playwright, director, designers, composers, dramaturg, choreographer, voice or intimacy consultants); independent producers, freelance production manager and production personnel (eg stage manager, mechanist, technician, dresser).

With the aim of providing access to those likely experiencing unstable income, people employed in front of house, ticketing and theatre administration roles are not eligible.
