Committed to delivering a premium, professional, yet affordable theatre experience for both artists and general public alike, we have been continuously evolving and self-improving to live up to our promises. After years of working with independent theatre producers, one common struggle we've seen is with the creation of professional marketing materials, a crucial part of our show promotion. To help make high quality artwork more accessible, we have invested in the creation of an easy-to-implement toolkit of branded templates and guidelines for our producers to generate their own marketing collateral.....entirely FREE OF CHARGE!

Or if you'd prefer to hand over the job to a professional, we have partnered up with Art For Artists, the creator of our new branding assets, to have all your design needs taken care of for $200+gst, as a special package deal to our producers.

To assist even further, we are also offering to cover up to 50% of this package ourselves when combining it with certain venue hire arrangements (*Ts&Cs apply) for the next 6 months! We want to make the best effort possible to give our producers the greatest chance of success.

Get in touch now ([email protected]) and find out how we can help your show stand out regardless of experience and budget!

We are taking every measure to make our theatre a safe performance venue during this challenging time.

With our generous sized stage, multiple dressing rooms and ample backstage area, we are able to transform the theatre into a COVID-19 safe workspace for performers.

To protect the general public’s health and safety, we are taking great caution and diligently following VAPAC’s COVID-Safe venue operation guidelines. We have reconfigured the audience seating into an individual “bubble-style” cabaret table setup. With drinks ordered at the table and served in disposable glasses, any cross-contamination risk will be minimised.

Due to show season postponement and cancellation, we now also have more availability for workshops, acting classes, rehearsals, auditions and film-shoots.

EXCITING NEWS! Art For Artists has been working with The MC Showroom for the past few months to develop an easy-to-implement toolkit of branded templates and guidelines, that will allow producers to generate their own marketing collateral, free of charge! On top of this, if artists and producers would prefer to have their artwork taken care of by an experienced designer, we have developed a special package deal with The MC Showroom, offering to take care of these marketing materials for just $200+gst! Not only does this greatly reduce the stress of marketing responsibilities, it also frees producers up to focus on other areas of production, while knowing this important part of their show is being taken care of by a professional. As Art For Artists’ lead designer is a producer himself, we know the unique pressures of staging a show within a limited budget and timeframe, so we wanted to create an opportunity for all producers to access to high-quality show branding, regardless of budget or experience. Our goal is to ease pressure in an area of production that is often underestimated, but can indeed make or break a show. Plus, the creation of these templates and packages doesn’t only benefit producers, it also provides The MC Showroom with consistent marketing collateral and a fresh new branded look, so everybody wins! To assist even further, The MC Showroom are offering to cover 50% of this package when combining it with certain venue hire arrangements (*Ts&Cs apply) for the next 6 months! Get in touch ([email protected]) for more information!
