Musicals Australia is the brainchild of Henry Sachwald.

He created the radio program “Henry Sachwald’s Theatretrack” for 3MBS FM, in 1984 as the first step in bringing both new and old musical theatre repertoire to the attention of the general public.

Audience interest in musical theatre has grown steadily since HST first went to air in 1984. The public response to the live radio broadcast of the 700th program at Chapel Off Chapel in October 2001 has given Henry the confidence to take the next step in the presentation of Australia’s world class musical theatre performers, composers and writers: Musicals Australia.

About the Musicals Australia Donations Fund
MUSICALS AUSTRALIA is a musical theatre organisation with a difference. We are designed to serve the public and the entertainment industry through our non-profit status. We are an organisation whose goal is to re-invest our earnings from the presentation of professional musical theatre attractions into the community through educational programs in the Primary, Secondary and Adult Education sectors of the community. We will provide musical theatre workshops and master classes for industry professionals. We plan to establish a home base for our operations that will become the Centre for Australian Musical Theatre housing performance space(s), a music library and education and resource centre.
