ENCORE 2023 – Alumni Concert

We are delighted to be bringing you ENCORE 2023, a celebration of talent, featuring some of the several decades of company Alumni returning to the Williamstown stage.

Founded with the purpose of cultivating continued interest and participation in musical theatre, we are proud of our long line of alumni, and continually find inspiration from their achievements, interests and actions.

Showcasing memorable moments of times gone by, as well as a collection of hits from the modern day musical, ENCORE 2023 has something for everyone.

For some of the cast, it has been a very long time since they last threw on the ol’ character shoes and stepped out into the spotlight.

No doubt there will be some very deep breaths backstage followed by broad smiles on faces, as they step out on stage to give it another go.

Update on Postponement of Mamma Mia! – 19 July 2020

We hope everyone is staying safe and looking after themselves in this current unprecedented situation. As you are aware, Mamma Mia! had been postponed from May and rescheduled to new performance dates this coming November. However, based on the current Stage 3 restrictions, as well as uncertainties and health risks resulting from COVID-19, the Committee of Management has made the incredibly hard and difficult decision to postpone our production again until next year.

The company is optimistic of being able to stage Mamma Mia! in 2021. This of course, will be subject to advice from the Australian Government and relevant health organisations regarding COVID-19.


ALL existing bookings for 2020 will be cancelled and we will be processing all refunds during the week commencing Monday 27 July 2020. Please allow time for this refund to be received. Should you have any queries during the process please contact us via our website here or calling 1300 881 545.

Please note that you will need to rebook tickets for any performance of Mamma Mia! once we have confirmed new dates. 

We would like to thank all our wonderful patrons for your loyalty, patience and understanding during this difficult time, as well as for your continued support – we’ve received many offers and notes of best wishes over the last few months. 

As a community, we are all currently being faced with challenges in preserving what we love and cherish most. If you are looking for a way to support us to return when we can, this is your chance! Should you wish to not receive a full refund automatically, you can make a part or full donation by contacting us via our website here by Sunday 26 July and we will arrange this with you directly with much thanks but no expectation.

The WMTC family looks forward to seeing you all once again in our foyer. 

Kindest Regards,
Williamstown Musical Theatre Company

We will be conducting these changes in 3 stages as follows:

    • surrender your booking to the company as a donation,

please simply reply to your updated booking confirmation email from Monday 30th March onwards or alternatively email us here.

We will endeavour to accommodate any requests following the completion of STAGE 2 – this is to ensure patrons are allocated like-for-like ticket bookings initially before allowing further changes and requests.

We ask for your patience during this time while we work through requests to organise any changes or refunds.

As a community group of volunteers, our resources are stretched so please only call our ticket box office on 1300 881 545 if absolutely necessary or if you have not received your new booking confirmation by Sunday 5th April 2020.

As you are well aware, this is a difficult time worldwide, as we are all coping with unprecedented challenges. The health and financial impacts of this event will be significant for many people and organisations.  WMTC is no exception and we ask for your continued support through this difficult time. The best way you can help us is to support our Mamma Mia! season in November.

We look forward to seeing you again in the foyer!


Kind regards,
Williamstown Musical Theatre Company
