This year marks a special year for one truly valued member of Williamstown Musical Theatre Company. At last night’s Annual General Meeting, the WMTC committee were proud to announce our newest inductee to Life Member Status: Stuart Dodge.
 
Stuart first joined the company in 2008 and has been a cast member in 5 productions. His most notable achievements have been behind the scenes as a Director (13 shows), Choreographer, Set Designer, Scenic Artist, Properties Manager and Committee Member (since 2015) just to name a few.

In 2011 he was part of the inaugural team who developed and delivered our first junior program production, something he has consistently delivered on over a decade, a total of 9 junior productions with the company.

As a most deserving recipient of WMTC Life Membership, we express our deep appreciation, and award Stuart Dodge for his outstanding and dedicated service to our company.
 
Congratulations Stuart, from your WMTC family!

Williamstown Musical Theatre Company is proud to present the Australian Premiere Production of Frankenstein – A New Musical running from the 7th to 22nd November 2014 at the Williamstown Mechanics Institute Theatre.

 

With earnest ballads and soaring ensemble numbers, this compelling new musical brings the suspense and romance of the classic tale to life in a uniquely faithful, yet thoroughly innovative adaptation of Mary Shelley’s original novel. In his quest to discover the secret of life, Victor Frankenstein, a brilliant young scientist, creates a human of his own design that turns out to instead be a horrifying beast. This is no “Hollywood monster,” but a flesh-and-blood man who, while terrifying in appearance, grows to become articulate, cunning, and thirsting for revenge upon the creator who abandoned him. A tragic love story and exploration of humanity, Frankenstein – A New Musical, breathes new life into the world-renowned story of man and creator pitted against one another in epic battle. Authors Mark Baron, Jeffrey Jackson, and Gary P. Cohen have sought to create a work that was uniquely faithful to Shelley’s original novel while offering a bold, new experience for modern theatre audiences. The result is a thrilling “mindscape” that brings the timeless myth of Frankenstein to life as never before.
