Season Preview: Your guide to the arts in 2024

The State Theatre Company South Australia has announced its 2024 season, a diverse program of productions ranging from the intimate to the epic to the unabashedly glitzy.

It mightn’t be immediately obvious but there is a connecting thread between them all, STCSA’s Artistic Director and co-CEO Mitchell Butel tells Limelight. “It’s about getting into the minds of other people and listening. It’s about reminding us how much we can be changed by listening to other people’s thoughts, seeing other people’s experiences.”

“We’re launching the season two days before The Voice referendum. We’re very conscious of that,” Butel says. “We believe a season that speaks to how lives can be improved or better understood, one that says the world can be made better through the act of listening to someone else, feels like the right place to be.”
