Mordialloc Theatre Company is a community based theatre group which presents its plays in the Shirley Burke Theatre, Parkers Road, Parkdale. The audience subscriber base is primarily located within ten kilometres of the theatre, although many travel much longer distances to view our productions.  Similarly, our active membership has a local core with other members commuting from throughout the metropolitan area.

The Company has a six member Board of Management governing all aspects of the group’s affairs. Our current President is Juliet Hayday, who has been an active member of the company since since 2000.

MTC presents five productions a year, covering a range of genres, drama, comedy, thriller, farce. The Company has several resident directors, but guest directors are brought in too, and space is also made for emerging directors, since these are the people that the company will rely on for its future.  

As with most community theatre companies, we are always on the lookout for new members to enjoy participation in and contribute to the Company’s success.  Prospective members can contact us through our website at or email us at


Opening Hours

We usually rehearse three times a week, on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, and Sundays either afternoon or evening, depending on what the cast want. Our rehearsal venue is the Guide Hall, Glebe Avenue, Cheltenham (off Charman Road).
We start set build in the Shirley Burke Theatre two weeks before each show opens, and then run for 11 performances over three weekends.
