What’s on at La Trobe Student Theatre and Film

La Trobe Student Theatre and Film (STF) is a student-led, staff-supported program, creating a welcoming environment for students to independently direct, write, perform, crew and compose for stage and screen.

They host and facilitate several projects each year, such as festivals, plays and development projects.

They also create opportunities for enrichment and engagement through the arts and run various creative workshops and community events.

Here’s what’s coming up at STF this semester:

The Wretched 2025
A mark splattered like burning paint upon one’s body. An escalation that only complacency covers up. Friends gather, living in nostalgia and a haze of hedonism. Soon however for there will only be the marks of boots upon them and the wretched. 

The Wretched 2025 started out as a student-made play, transformed into a short film during COVID-19 lockdowns. Be part of its premiere in Week 10!
