It’s June! Company Manager Update
WOW another month just flashed by in the life of Melbourne Playback Theatre Company!
This month the Company has performed for many organisations and their staff including;
Inner South Community Health Service Health workers planning day: Melbourne Playback did a performance for seventy Community Health Workers who work with a member of the community who has acute health problems. Deb Barrow, Program Manager, advised us “It’s a planning session around mapping links between internal and external contacts, as well as bringing everyone together”
Further feedback from Helen Bell, General Manager (Community Support Area of Inner South) said “I would like to thank Melbourne Playback Theatre on behalf of all of our staff for your energy, skill, humour and amazing insights. We saw people laughing, with tears in their eyes, when on past occasions they have had grumpy faces! I’m sure that you are used to accolades and we add ourselves to the list and offer our heartfelt thanks. Thank you to all your fabulous team. It was very energizing and lots of fun and has put us into a good space to tackle the issues that we need to grapple within the year ahead. Exactly what we thought we might achieve!!’
City of Casey Leadership Day: The City of Casey requested a subsidy from Melbourne Playback, which we were able to give thanks to a generous donation we received.
Primary school student leaders were encouraged to recognise their individual leadership skills and strengths, which are transferable across many areas.
Feedback from Kharie Murphy Primary School (Support Office, City of Casey) was received by Melbourne Playback as follows:
“The performance captured what our day had been about and highlighted what the children had gained through participating. The performance was interactive and entertaining and completely fulfilled our expectations. The feedback I received on the day from the children was all positive.”
120 participants completed the evaluation following the session and marked Melbourne Playback theatre as AWESOME!!
Look out for more updates next week.
