Melbourne Theatre Company is where stories come alive. Based in Southbank in the heart of Victoria’s global arts precinct, the Company has created exceptional theatre for over 60 years, sharing the power of live storytelling with generations of Australians.
As the state theatre company of Victoria and operating as a department of the University of Melbourne, MTC is known for producing Australian and international theatre for today and tomorrow, with excellence, imagination and passion. MTC embodies the creative spirit for which Melbourne and Victoria are renowned, bringing remarkable theatre to the fore to inspire, entertain, challenge and enrich the lives of its audiences.
The Company has the largest subscriber base of any theatre company in the country and plays a vital role in the development of artists, industry practitioners and students through its signature programs such as the NEXT STAGE Writers’ Program, Women in Theatre program and MTC Education.
We are seeking an energetic, entrepreneurial and creative theatre-maker who will build on the strengths of the company and take us to the next stage of our evolution. It is an exciting opportunity to realise our ambitions for developing, producing and presenting theatre of scale and significance through a clear and creative artistic vision.
This vision for the future will incorporate new ways of delivering our artform, including through technology, programming and venues. Flexibility and innovation is key to our future, both in our core business of producing world class live theatre as well as developing and supporting the industry’s creative talent and exploring other possible streams of revenue.
The new Artistic Director of MTC will be entrusted to ensure that live storytelling on our stages is compelling, vital and relevant – resonating with audiences about their lives, each other and the world around us.
