HOW TO GET BACK TO HOLDING LIVE SHOWS – A CASE STUDY
“Live entertainment is back – and in a beautiful Melbourne outdoor setting!”
How good is it to see the exciting line up of artists now performing on the new Outdoor Stage at The Malthouse Theatre?
The Malthouse Theatre Outdoor Stage is Melbourne’s newest outdoor performance venue currently hosting live shows featuring a wide variety of Australian cultural experiences in partnership with Melbourne’s leading performing arts organisations.
After 2020 closing all Melbourne theatre venues, there was an obvious need to provide the city with a Covid responsible performance alternative. Late last year The Malthouse Theatre obtained the support of Creative Victoria and were awarded a Grant “To strengthen knowledge and skills in COVIDSafe best-practice for venues and to reach audiences outside of the venue through complementary digital experiences that support the work Malthouse presents onstage.”
In December, Malthouse co-CEO and executive producer, Sarah Neal, said: “Malthouse Outdoor Stage will be a vital way for our company to extend performance opportunities to the precinct and the wider sector, and importantly, for Malthouse Theatre to re-open earlier than is possible for indoor performances.”
Select Staging Concepts are thrilled to see such great reviews on the artists who have already performed on the custom “Made In Australia” TITAN heavy duty portable Stage we manufactured utilising the sustainable FSC rated MAXI Hex podium floor finish – perfect for a seasonal outdoor Stage.
It is even more heartening, after a year of watching an industry in decline, to see this great Melbourne venue rally to provide eager Australian patrons with an outdoor venue COVID responsible and safe.
Already artists such as Eddie Perfect and Lano & Woodley have entertained patrons on the new Outdoor Stage, and we can’t wait to hear how Paul Kelly, Paul McDermott, the MOS Comedy Gala performers, and a star studded program of artists perform in the coming months for an entertainment starved clientele.
Congrats to The Malthouse Outdoor Theatre – an excellent Stage solution – so what are you waiting for? Check out the events on sale and elevate yourselves.
