Welcome to the Melbourne University Student Theatre Website. This project celebrates the contribution made to Australian theatre by students of the University of Melbourne.
Of all University theatres, it could be argued that the University of Melbourne’s Union Theatre has had the most profound influence on the development of theatre which celebrates an Australian identity.
In recent years there has been a veritable explosion of student theatre groups encompassing all genres of theatre and modes of performance. Each year a handful of new companies crop up and have a shelf life as long as the average undergraduate degree!
There have been thousands of students and teachers, actors and playwrights, technicians and artists who have contributed so much to the rich tapestry of theatre that has been produced here at The University of Melbourne over the past 150 years.
