2015 sees Monash become major sponsor of Malthouse Theatre

MALT_082The Centre for Theatre and Performance is delighted to announce that from 2015, Monash becomes a major sponsor of the Malthouse Theatre.

The Malthouse Theatre is one of Melbourne’s premier theatre companies, and probably the best venue for seeing the state of play in the Melbourne performance culture.

CTP Director Jane Montgomery Griffiths says, “This is a terrific opportunity for CTP and Malthouse. It’s very fitting that CTP, as one of the leading educators of the next generation of theatre makers, should partner Malthouse, the most exciting producing venue for new theatre and performance. I’m particularly pleased about the opportunities this partnership will open up for our students to engage with professional industry practice and visiting international artists.”

The relationship opens the way for a large number of internships for CTP students in the  areas of stage management, literary management, marketing, lighting design, scenic design, assistant directing. It also opens the way for some third year performance students to present their work at Malthouse‘s Tower Theatre. This will become a show case for the industry to show off the talents of our students.

CTP will organise a series of public cultural conversations on the Malthouse Season, with panels and audience participation.  CTP students and Monash staff, students and alumni will also have access to discount ticket offers, and will have first option on any complimentary offers. Monash and Malthouse will share visiting international artists. This means that students entering the performance minor with have the chance to be taught by internationally renowned companies such as Reckless Sleepers and Belarus Free Theatre.

In addition, Malthouse will offer career advice to CTP students wanting to enter various aspects of the industry.

This is just the beginning. As the relationship develops, we’ll be developing more connections between the company and our Centre. We look forward to a fruitful relationship ahead!
