Morning Melodies

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 Queensland members have been granted permission by Arts Centre Melbourne to use the Morning Melodies Trade Mark.

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.

How can I tour a show?

To be considered for touring to Queensland Morning Melodies venues, producers should read the INFORMATION for Morning Melodies Producers, PREVIEW the questions, and then SUBMIT the details of their show via the submission form below.  Stage Queensland will then facilitate the venue voting process as per the timeline detailed in the information pack.
