**Please note that submissions for 2021 Morning Melodies tours are not being received. Due to COVID-19, cancelled tours for 2020 will be rescheduled for 2021 where possible. **
For over 30 years, a core group of 10-13 Stage Queensland member-venues have presented up to six Morning Melodies (or similarly named) productions per year as part of a coordinated touring circuit. The participating venues work together to lock in a run of dates to make a viable touring itinerary spanning 1-2 weeks for each production.
To be considered for touring to Queensland Morning Melodies venues, producers should read the information pack: Information for Morning Melodies Producers and submit details of their show using the Morning Melodies submission form. Stage Queensland will then facilitate the venue voting process as per the timeline detailed in the information pack.
What is Morning Melodies?
A “Morning Melodies” show provides live performance experiences for older members of local communities. It is an accessible 90-minute daytime show featuring light musical entertainment, sometimes with morning tea included in the relatively inexpensive ticket price. These shows generally attract retirees and group bookings from nursing homes and seniors’ clubs and the majority of patrons are aged in their 60s to 80s.
Stage Qld members have been granted permission by Arts Centre Melbourne to use the Morning Melodies Trade Mark.
