Melbourne Theatre Company will finally return to the stage in January after 10 and a half months waiting in the wings. Given the safety restrictions around COVID-19 currently in place in Melbourne, the company has decided to just release the first part of its 2021 season, which will include two mainstage productions and a Summer Series of works in development. The company is also launching MTC Digital Theatre in 2021.
“Announcing our return to stage is a significant milestone – it marks the end of our longest stretch off-stage in the company’s history and the beginnings of MTC’s recovery,” said Artistic Director and CEO Brett Sheehy.
“It also signals our survival of 2020, MTC’s very own annus horribilis,and a year that we could not have got through without the support of our audiences and broader community.”
