Australian Musical Theatre Festival 2020 Cancellation

In response to the unfolding COVID-19 situation, we have made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel the upcoming Australian Musical Theatre Festival, scheduled for May 21 - 24 in Launceston, Tasmania.

Our Festival partners, patrons, artists, supporters and champions mean the world to us and we will work together to ensure a 2021 Festival that includes a diverse program with opportunities to teach, collaborate, engage, perform, learn and – of course – enjoy.

The Australian Musical Theatre Festival is a national event, supported by the Tasmanian Government through Events Tasmania and is held annually to benefit the musical theatre industry.

The 2021 Festival will be held from 19 - 23 May with the potential of offering something to instil hope and keep our musical theatre passion going, later in 2020.

For those who have purchased tickets to this year's Festival, a full refund will be provided. You will be contacted in due course to organise this, please sit tight! Email us at if you have any concerns, otherwise we will be in touch!

Keep an eye on our Facebook, Instagram, and right here for updates as they come up.

Thank you for your support as we navigate this difficult time.

Keep singing,  
Team AMTF
