Monash continues partnership with Malthouse Theatre in 2016

MALT_082The Centre for Theatre and Performance has enjoyed a terrific partnership with Malthouse Theatre in 2016.  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 has seen 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 opened the way for some third year performance students to present their work at Malthouse‘s Tower Theatre. This will became a show case for the industry to show off the talents of our students.
CTP will continue to 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. 
In addition, Malthouse will offer career advice to CTP students wanting to enter various aspects of the industry.
