Men’s mental health. A topic of conversation which has gained some traction in the last few years, but is still considered taboo; too difficult to understand; too difficult to talk about.

Downstage Centre brings together 14 of Melbourne’s leading music theatre performers for an unforgettable event. These performers are, quite literally, lending their voices to this worthy cause.

Downstage Centre aims to raise awareness of and funds for beyondblue and men’s mental health.

Join us as we aim to shine the light and diminish the darkness.
