Union House Theatre Volunteer 

Union House Theatre (UHT) is the dynamic community of theatre and performance on campus. UHT runs an epic theatre and performance program for all students at the University of Melbourne and helps over 20 Student Theatre Groups to produce plays in the brand-new Guild and Union Theatres. UHT is for all students, regardless of what you are studying.

  • helping Student Theatre Groups who need occasional support for events; 

  • marketing and promotional activations for Student Theatre.
