MINI DEVELOPMENT SESSIONS

What is AMTAC?

The Australian Musical Theatre Collective exists to provide a space where artists – from composers and writers to actors, producers, directors, musical directors and dramaturgs – can come together with industry professionals to collaborate on new Australian musicals to gain feedback, support and knowledge that they can apply through the creation and development of their own original Australian works. AMTAC sessions take place in partnership with Alex Theatre St Kilda.
