Clubs Associations in Perth City
The Melville Theatre Company was founded in 1982 and presents community productions of plays and musicals.
- Type:Club,Volunteer,Local Focus
- Arts:Music,Performing Arts
The Melville Theatre Company was the brainchild of the late David J. Burton who, in 1982, called a meeting for interested people in the community to form a theatre company in the Melville area.
As a result of this meeting the Melville Theatre Company was born. The newly formed company’s first production was the farce, Not Now Darling. With its second production, The Sound of Music, the young company won the Finley Award for the Best Production of the Year in Community Theatre. Since then, actors and directors have consistently featured in the list of awards at the annual State Drama Festival. In recent times, Melville has taken home three more Finley awards for Best Play; one for our 2010 production of The Return, in 2013 for Rabbit Hole and the 2014 production of Twelve Angry Men.
Initially our seasons were performed in the Melville Civic Centre, but since 1987, our venue has been the Roy Edinger Centre, on the corner of Stock Road and Canning Highway, Palmyra. For many years we shared this venue with a multitude of other users, which created difficulties for all parties, however, in 1998 we were granted sole management by the City of Melville and have thus been able to create a real theatre within the centre, including raked seating, carpeting and a new lighting and sound system.

Repair Cafe Perth is a monthly event where visitors can bring broken items from home and repair them with the help of a volunteer expert.

Semi-professional theatre company run at The University of Western Australia, established in 1917.

UDS is a student-run semi-professional theatre company based at the University of Western Australia, and affiliated with the UWA Student Guild. Running for nearly 100 years, UDS has a long history but an interest in producing work that is exciting and relevant today. Open to students and others alike, we encourage new work, including plays written by members, as well as contemporary and historical theatre. UDS works mostly in the Dolphin Theatre at UWA.
All productions are run entirely by members, and UDS is a great breeding ground for young actors, directors, producers, technicians and so on, while being accessible to those just wanting to have some fun.
UDS is a great opportunity for those interested in theatre, both at UWA and outside of it.
