⭐️"JUST TO GET YOUR NAME IN LIGHTS!"⭐️

Preparations are underway for what is shaping up to be a BUSY few days of auditions. The production team have been working tirelessly behind the scenes, making sure that their vision for the production of The Boy From Oz is clear, concise, innovative and spectacular, however true to the original and already remarkable concept. "Performing in a space such as the Centenary Theatre has it's limitations, but only if you work against them. Embracing the small and intimate nature of the theatre has been the driving inspiration behind the basic concept of this production - a raw and emotionally charged nostalgic journey in to the life of Peter Allen, where the audience feel like they're being taken on a very personal and intimate ride."

As spots are filling very quickly for auditions, make sure to book yours today so you don't miss out! We are looking for a very diverse cast of all ages, genders, sexual orientations and identities, size, disability and cultural backgrounds.

THE BARBER SHOP HAS CLOSED FOR BUSINESS
What an absolute treat it was to bring audiences our production of SWEENEY TODD and even though our season was sadly cut short, we are just brimming with pride from positive reviews and feedback we received on the production. WMTC would like to thank each and every person who attended a performance, we are truly, truly, humbled.

Throughout the season we shared a number of photos from our spectacular production, but must also acknowledge the team that don’t appear in these photos, our 'killer' orchestra and our many company volunteers that create our costumes, build and dress our sets, invent props (if only you knew what those pies and blood were made of), move our sets around the stage, shine lights, and especially keep a rowdy cast in order. WE THANK YOU!

As a final farewell to SWEENEY TODD we present our group shots for you to enjoy, the cast, cast & production team, our orchestra and costume team! WMTC’s SWEENEY TODD played for 6 performances November 2022 @ Williamstown’s Centenary Theatre

Introducing Louise Parsons, SWEENEY TODD’S costume designer who spoke about the vision for the costumes; “Even though there will be some traditional Sweeney Todd ‘grime’, we wanted to do something a little bit different that people hadn’t seen before, so we’ve got a little splash of something special in there”.

Last week was Volunteer Week and so on Saturday we celebrated Hobsons Bay volunteers at an exclusive performance of Mamma Mia by the Williamstown Musical Theatre Company at the Centenary Theatre. We had over 120 volunteers in attendance from Food Services, VIC, PAG, Community Transport, Libraries, Conservation Friends groups, Neighbourhood Houses and Community Centres who loved the performance and the day.

The event was a huge success. Thank you to all staff involved, to the WMTC and all the wonderful volunteers!
