A classic reimagined – with under 30’s in mind
A legendary film partnership is brought back to life in this, the world premiere of Carolyn Burns' adaption of North by Northwest.
The 1959 classic tells the daring story of mistaken identity in true Hithcockian flair and drama. It's also Cary Grant at his charming and dependable best.
The film is brought to life on stage as part of the Melbourne Theatre Company's 2015 season.

Films like North by Northwest are considered classics for a reason (Cary Grant is a personal favourite!). They endure, they transcend genre and era, and exemplify Hollywood at its stunning, golden best.

The Arts Centre regularly post special prices for 'under 30s' (29 years or younger), full time students and those who are unemployed – and by special prices, I mean incredible discounts. It's a wonderful opportunity to explore theatre and stage performance for those who perhaps otherwise couldn't afford to. And in the stage adaption of North by Northwest, The Arts Centre (and partners) are bringing The Golden Age to the current age – a unique opportunity not to be missed.
Tickets are on sale now. As an 'under 30', I just purchased a weekend matinee ticket for $51 (full price equivalent was $129). The play will run from 1 – 20 June 2015.
To purchase tickets and to double check price listings for the category/seating area you're interested in, see The Arts Centre website for details.
