After nearly two decades in Sydney, Live Performance Australia, the producers of The Helpmanns, have announced the event will take place at Arts Centre Melbourne for the first time.

In a statement, LPA Chief Executive Evelyn Richardson said, “For the first time in the rich history of the Awards we are thrilled to be presenting the national Helpmann Awards events in Melbourne. Similar to the Tony Awards in New York and the Olivier Awards in London, the Helpmann Awards highlight the artistry and excellence in Australia’s live performance industry. The Awards celebrate the many hands and hearts engaged in making the live performance industry – a dynamic and creative powerhouse that is enjoyed by 23 million people each year in Australia.”

Victorian Minister for Creative Industries Martin Foley welcomed the move. “Melbourne is the creative and cultural capital of the country and the perfect place for this celebration of Australia’s remarkable live performance industry. The theatre, live music and the performing arts attract visitors to our city year-round, creating jobs and making Melbourne more exciting and vibrant,” he said.

The Helpmann Awards features 42 categories covering Australia’s live performance sectors including musicals, contemporary music, comedy, opera and classical music, theatre, ballet, dance and physical theatre, presentation for children and young people, regional touring and cabaret.

The Helpmann Awards is on 14 and 15 July 2019 at Arts Centre Melbourne.
