Melbourne Theatre Company (MTC) released its season 2017 plays last month, and has a special offer available to all University of Melbourne staff.

“Season 2017 is one of our most exciting yet,” says Artistic Director Brett Sheehy.

“The year ahead draws together an enviable assortment of artists to present stories from France, Britain, Ireland, America, India, and, of course, Australia, for a season that will bring laughter, empathy, debate and intrigue to all our lives.”

Among the 11 mainstage productions will be four outstanding new Australian plays, and the return of the Bard in Shakespeare’s searing tragedy of ambition, betrayal and murder, Macbeth.

Established in 1953 as the University’s Union Theatre Repertory Company, the MTC is the oldest professional theatre company in Australia. It is a semi-autonomous department of the University of Melbourne and has become Victoria’s principal theatre company. In 2009 its Southbank Theatre, designed by award-winning ARM Architecture was completed, giving the MTC a permanent home in Melbourne’s Arts Precinct. 

University of Melbourne staff and their partners are able to save up to 20 per cent on tickets and season subscriptions, while students under the age of thirty can enjoy subscriptions from just $30 per play.
