This is the purpose-built home of the MTC. MTC lobbied to get its own dedicated theatre complex after the Sydney Theatre Co got its own building (a converted pier). MTC stages plays here and you may also find some theatre events happening in the theatres of the Arts Centre (next to NGV International). I'm not a regular attender as I've... More

My wife and I have been regular subscribers for over 30 years. We enjoy some plays more than others but the production quality and theatres is first rate.

My recent dealings with the MTC have been most dissapointing ! After purchasing a $250 voucher as a gift and the recipient being critically ill I have been told that the voucher is no longer Valid and there is nothing that can be done to assist. Customer service was not helpful or sypathetic to the situation. Would not recommend purchasing... More

The description world class is so overrated. It presumes that somehow Australian arts and culture are behind. Take a visit to any MTC creation to understand they are not only doing just fine, they are brilliant. As subscribers we see the full gamut of their talents, and we are rarely disappointed . This is more likely to be about our... More

We attended the production of Neighbourhood Watch this week. A great script and I can highly recommened it to lovers of quality acting. Tickets were very reasonably priced. BUT - we were in row AA - front row. This meant that we couldn't possibly see the whole stage - Yes, it did spoil our viewing and I do not believe... More

This theater company presently is celebrating its 60th anniversary. It is the oldest professional theater company in Australia. If you are visiting Melbourne, it is worth checking if they are performing. The quality of their performances is uniformly excellent, and they offer a varied program through the year. Well worthwhile, for anyone who is interested in the theater.

As a first time visitor, I was impressed by everything in the complex except the leg room in the Sumner Theatre. For tall patrons unless you have an aisle seat be prepared for a not so comfortable night during a long show.

saw a play last night and it was a gritty story with the focus of the story on who is a witch and why and it's set in a very old time. great acting and a very dramatic story. The theater was a different story however. Comfortable, relaxing and easy to get to and relax in prior to taking in... More
