ACKNOWLEDGMENT OF COUNTRY
In the spirit of reconciliation The Mitchell Old Company acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay respect to their elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people today.
The Mitchell Old Company is a live entertainment company formed to produce theatrical productions and live entertainment experiences in Australia. Born out of the 2020 Covid Pandemic, TMOC aims to create enriching professional experiences for emerging and established artists. Excellence, Innovation and Opportunity are the three words that govern all that occurs at TMOC and are the words we hope are exemplified by the art we create.
To redefine what Live Theatre looks like in Australia by creating deeply affecting and increasingly immersive sensory theatre experiences. Commercial Australian Theatre is in deep need of a shake up and we hope to be one of the driving forces that effect this change by becoming a influential producing body in the Australian Theatre scene.
OUR COMMITMENT TO DIVERSITY
The Mitchell Old Company stands against racism in all forms. We stand to identify the systemic barriers and prejudices within the performing arts industry and work to remove them from the art we create. TMOC works to ensure that all performers are welcome; inclusive of race, gender and disability/neurodiversity, we strongly support IBPOC and CALD and LGBTQIA+ members of our industry and work towards a high representation of all.
MEET THE TEAM
Producer - Artistic Director
Bursting onto the scene with a sold out 27 performance season of HEATHERS: The Musical in February 2022, Mitchell Old (he/him) is already making a solid mark on the Australian Theatre Scene, with his second production being described as, “comparable in standard to the original Australian season at Hayes Theatre in 2015.” (David Spicer – Stage Whispers). With a passion for creating inclusive professional experiences for both emerging and established artists as well as specialised experience across all elements of production, Mitchell is a well-rounded, versatile and knowledgeable producer.
In 2019, Mitchell directed and produced his first Cabaret show entitled 'The Jazz Cafe' and was in turn awarded with the John Lincoln Youth Community Service Award for his contributions to the music programs within schools in the Hills. In September 2020, Mitchell created the Mitchell Old Company after identifying the gap that the 2020 Covid Pandemic had left in many artists lives. The debut TMOC production of The Last Five Years was able to bridge that gap for a handful of artists in Sydney and something Mitchell looks forward to continuing through the coming years. Mitchell has a passion for empowering young professionals to rise above their own perceived limitations and to unlock their inner leadership, craft and artistic identity. Mitchell looks forward to pushing the expectations of Australian theatre-goers by creating intensely conflicting sensory theatre experiences.
