MTC's Production of VIOLENT OUTBURST Will Embark on Tour
Melbourne Theatre Company's production of The Violent Outburst That Drew Me to You, directed by Prue Clark, commences its regional tour in Mildura on Wednesday before going on to play at three other leading performing arts venues in Victoria, as well as Launceston College and Hobart's Theatre Royal in Tasmania.
Starring Josh Price (An Ideal Husband), Harry Tseng (Jasper Jones) and newcomer Izabella Yena, The Violent Outburst That Drew Me To You by internationally renowned writer of theatre for young people Finegan Kruckemeyer tackles the ticking time-bomb of adolescence with affection and humour.
Winner of the 2014 AWGIE (Australian Writers' Guild Award) for Best Theatre for Young Audiences, The Violent Outburst That Drew Me To You is part of MTC's acclaimed Families and Education Program that reaches thousands of students across Victoria through programming for young audiences, regional touring, scholarships, workshops and more.
MTC Executive Director and co-CEO Virginia Lovett said, 'This is now our fifth year taking our education production on the road to regional Victoria and across the strait to Tasmania. It's wonderful to once again make theatre accessible to young people from around the state, especially with such an astute and endearing piece of writing like The Violent Outburst That Drew Me To You'.
MTC's tour program features free pre-show talks and post-show Q&As for school groups, as well as the opportunity for students to explore elements of theatre composition, technologies and styles seen on stage through dedicated interactive workshops.
The tour is part of MTC's Sharing the Light initiative, which is generously supported by the Crown Resorts Foundation and Packer Family Foundation.
