MeDirect supporting Teatru Astra’s theatre programme throughout 2023

MeDirect, Malta’s first digital bank, is supporting the 2023 theatre programme of the Soċjetà Filarmonika La Stella in Gozo. The donation was presented to Andrea Camilleri, Director of Musicals at the Society’s Teatru Astra in Victoria, by Amanda Dimech, Wealth Manager at MeDirect’s Gozo investment centre and will help deliver a wide-ranging programme of productions.  

Among the productions scheduled for 2023 is The Sound of Music. This much anticipated musical, taking place on 17th, 18th, 19th and 25th March, will star Jasmine Farrugia as Maria alongside West End idol Anthony Edridge as Captain Von Trapp.

Speaking at the presentation, Ms. Dimech said: “MeDirect has established a presence in the heart of Gozo and we are committed to playing a positive role in the cultural and social life of the island. The Soċjetà Filarmonika La Stella is among the leaders in bringing world class theatre and music to Gozo and we are confident that MeDirect’s support will continue to strengthen their efforts.”

Mr. Camilleri said: “2023 is going to be a very busy year for Teatru Astra with preparations for The Sound of Music, the much-loved story of the Von Trapp family, already well underway. The theatre relies on the support of patrons and corporate donations to operate, and we are always heartened to see companies like MeDirect stepping forward to contribute.”

Teatru Astra was inaugurated in 1968, establishing itself as one of Gozo’s leading cultural centres. Since 1978 it has become almost synonymous with the annual production of Opera as well as hosting a range of international singers, plays and musicals.
