Since 1982, the Green Room Awards have been Melbourne’s premier peer-presented, performing arts industry awards. Each year we recognise outstanding achievements in productions from Cabaret, Contemporary & Experimental Performance, Dance, Independent Theatre, Music Theatre, Opera and Theatre Companies. The awards acknowledge the contributions of the many diverse artists and technicians who work on stage, backstage, in the grid and in the pit.
We are an entirely voluntary organisation, from the Executive Committee to the Panel Chairs, from the Panel Members to our hosts, presenters and patrons. We all give of our time because we believe that acknowledging the work of our peers not only recognises their outstanding achievements, but contributes to a stronger, more exciting and innovative industry that is better for performance makers and audiences alike.
