About Us

Union House Theatre (UHT for short – like the milk!) runs an epic theatre and performance program for all students at the University of Melbourne.

We program plays, musicals, dance, comedy, masterclasses and events.

We have five staff members and run two performance venues in Union House – one is also a cinema.

We support students to be performers, playwrights, technicians, backstage crew, designers, directors, producers, choreographers + more!

Student Theatre Groups

Student theatre groups are exactly what they sound like: groups of students who produce and perform their own shows. Performance types include theatre, musicals, dance etc. – we welcome ALL types of performance! We have around 25 affiliated student theatre groups. You can find one you’d like to join here or you can start your own. You can also join the general student theatre Facebook group!

Find Out What’s Going On

The best way to get involved is to be proactive and find out what is happening in the theatre program that interests you. Auditions and production crew callouts are listed in our enews. You can also try directly contacting the students running a production and ask if you can join their team.

There are many different ways to keep up to date with the theatre opportunities on campus:
1. Come into the theatre office (level 1, Union House) and say hello! 
2. Sign up to our weekly enews ‘Followspot’
3. Browse the productions and workshops listed in the program
4. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram

Everyone is Welcome!

We don’t care what you are studying or whether you are a first year, second year or doing your PhD – don’t be shy!
There is no joining fee to be a part of Union House Theatre.
There are occasionally minimal costs for our workshops but participation is voluntary.
Some of our student theatre groups may require you to pay a small joining fee but that is up to the individual group.
