Push your creative boundaries with our hands-on, practical theatre courses. Melbourne Polytechnic’s Theatre students develop and extend their skills in movement, voice, acting and improvisation.

It’s not all on stage - our theatre students also study scriptwriting and stage their own plays for a live audience.

You will also learn theatre lighting, sound, stage management, set and prop making, costuming and marketing.

You will have access to the David Williamson Theatre. This 120-seat facility has an industry-standard lighting rig, lighting and sound equipment, flying systems and set and prop construction area and stage storage spaces.

There is also a smaller theatre training venue and a large movement room for rehearsal spaces.
