The La Mama Learning Program seeks to actively engage audiences, students, educators and artists alike in the process of critical thinking and practical investigation, as it relates to contemporary performance. To do this the La Mama Learning Program offers a diverse range of theatre opportunities, activities and nurtures on-going relationships with students and educators, particularly in secondary and tertiary institutions in order to help them to discover the joy of theatre and to encourage a long lasting engagement with theatre throughout their lives.

La Mama Learning Program activities include:

– The presentation of productions as part of the annual VCE prescribed Playlists for Drama and Theatre Studies

– After-show forums that include “meet the writer” and discussions with casts, creatives and crew members

– Access to published VCE texts of new Australian plays

–End-of-year revision & study sessions for VCE teachers and students

– Workshops (and PD days) for teachers and/or students

– History of La Mama talks and backstage tours of both La Mama venues, adapted to suit your specific needs and year level of students – provided on demand

– Advice and general information to teachers about all La Mama productions as requested

Feedback, emails and suggestions from teachers and students are always welcome! For these and other educational enquiries, please contact our Learning Producer, Maureen Hartley (
