The Collective aims to offer opportunity to both working professionals and those wanting to work professionally in theatre.
Its aim is to reward the most talented performers based on just that - talent!

We give performers every opportunity to succeed, with longer audition times and the opportunity to workshop the piece from the initial audition.

Geordie Worland, founder of The Collective, has been involved in theatre in some way, shape or form for most of his life; as performer, musician and now producer.

With a strong back ground in business development and project management he is passionate about making sure that the idea and concept of The Collective is managed correctly to provide longevity in the theatre industry. It is paramount to get both the business and creative aspect of production 100% right in order to succeed in the industry.

What we need

The costs of running and setting up a theatre company are many to say the least. Due to unfortunate circumstances The Collective has had two major backer back out due to severe personal reasons so crowd funding has become crucial. So much goes into creating outstanding theatre and all involved should be rewarded for the role they play.

As an emerging company The Collective will be looking to use the funds raised to cover the following:

1. Sets and Costumes - $7000

2. Lighting and Technical Support - $2000

4. Theatre Hire and associated expenses - $6000

Contributors will be rewarded with great perks, including tickets to the show, opening night and cast meet and greet. 

    The Collective

    The Collective is a production company that will produce professional theatre, with a focus on Music Theatre in Melbourne. 
    Its aim is to produce at least one fully staged musical a year as well as cabarets. 
    It also aims to have a scholarship program in place within its first 12 months, providing monetary assistance and a mentor program for up and coming performers who wish to further their studies.

    In its unique approach The Collective is set up as just that – a collection of performers, directors, musical directors, choreographers and production roles who jointly create a vision for each piece it produces. The company is set up to equally financially reward those involved for their input.
