Melville Theatre Company

The Melville Theatre Company was founded in 1982 and presents community productions of plays and musicals.

  • Local Clubs:Arts,Music
  • Type:Club,Volunteer,Association,Local Focus

Details

  • Arts:Local Clubs,Music,Performing Arts
  • Established:1982

Description

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.

Description

Theatre Kimberley has been providing a range of opportunities that enrich and create a sense of wellbeing through community engagement, for over sixteen years in the region. Community cultural development practices are at the core of all the organisation’s undertakings, and these also capture the unique environment and artistic inspiration of the communities in which Theatre Kimberley exists. Theatre Kimberley’s specific objectives are to:

  • Promote resource and develop performance theatre from the Kimberley for the Kimberley and Australia
  • Foster and encourage training and professional development for communities in all aspects of theatre-based practice
  • Develop collaborative creative partnerships
  • Support social and academic learning programmes throughout the community

Theatre Kimberley’s excellent standing amongst the arts and community sectors alike reflects the organisation’s history of quality theatrical endeavours, the scale of productions and breadth of community engagement not matched by any other organisation in the North West, as well as assisting in the establishment of many local artists emerging careers. A social and emotional connection is created with Theatre Kimberley performers and participants who use these projects as a ‘spring board’ for many future theatre training and work, whether in the region, interstate and overseas. Theatre Kimberley offers training and career pathways to artists and facilitates wider understanding of the important role arts plays in making the Kimberley a great place to live. Theatre Kimberley works across ages and cultures. A whole-of-community approach includes extensive work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the region.

There has also been a particular focus in the organisation on developing youth programmes as well. Operating under the umbrella of Theatre Kimberley, Sandfly Circus was begun over ten years ago, providing opportunities for involving children and young people through its classes and community performances. Sandflies is currently made up of approximately 80 children and young people participating across four regular weekly classes. Sandfly Circus students work with a cohort of local trainers in Broome, and the skills of local trainers are often supplement by visiting artists in residence from other places, who are professional circus performers with a demonstrated record. There is one major Sandfly show each year along with smaller performances and workshops in the communities.

Sandflies addresses a number of needs in the local region. Importantly this includes reducing inequalities in access to programmes that enhance skill sharing and essential tools and that may assist young people to make healthy and creative life choices. Participating younger people also gain a chance to share respect and ideas, and to learn from older members through informal peer tutoring. In addition, and as above, young Sandflies are continued to be supported in their entry to further education and/or employment in the arts.
