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
CEO - Artistic Director
Mitchell Old is a young and upcoming Theatre Producer and Director. Currently studying a Bachelor of Music Education at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, Mitchell is already making waves within the Live Entertainment Industry. As a classical saxophonist, DJ, event manager, producer, director, audio engineer, conductor and educator, Mitchell sought to find an avenue where all of these skills could be combined with his strong entrepreneurial personality.
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.
Harrison Alexander has always had a passion for theatre, appearing in musicals and various productions around Australia from the age of 7. Throughout high school Harrison performed across Sydney, including as a featured vocalist for Channel 10, Schools Spectacular and The Arts Alive Festival. Now studying a Bachelor of Music Performance at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, Harrison regularly performs as a Vocalist/Multi-instrumentalist throughout Sydney. After working with TMOC on its debut production as a Stage Manager, Harrison became infatuated with the company's passion for empowering younger performers in a professional environment, something that is especially important during these times. As a Music Director he pushes the boundaries of style and tradition to deliver a raw sonic landscape.
