It was with sadness that we heard this weekend of Whitehorse Musical Theatre’s decision to close their doors after forty years of fabulous contribution to the Melbourne amateur theatre community. We at MDMS are sad to see this theatre ‘great’ shut up shop after such a long and rich history.
The closing of WMT has brought into stark focus the importance of community in amateur theatre. We encourage everyone out there to support your companies in any way you can; whether that be as a performer, on production team, a committee member or an all important member of the audience. Amateur theatre does so much for so many – we’d hate to see the fate of WMT become the trend.
Take a bow, Whitehorse…MDMS applauds you.
