Entry by Audition
Curated and led by the Company’s Artistic Director, James Berlyn, with contributions from leading industry artists, this year-long program takes participants through the foundations of theatre and contemporary performance making. For those who have acquired some of the performance toolkit already, the program reinforces and extends.
Running Sundays from late March/April and culminating in a December invited-guest showcase, Ensemble provides members with an extensive training program of weekly engagements and masterclasses.
Intake is split into Juniors (13 – 17 year olds) and Seniors (18 – 26 year olds), and entry is by audition. In 2022 we will be opening up the opportunity to 11-12 year olds for the first time, by running three core ensembles:
- Beginners (11-14 y.o.), 1.5hr-long workshops
- Juniors (15-17 y.o.), 2hr-long workshops
- Seniors (18-26 y.o.), 3hr-long workshops
WAYTCo ensembles are fee-for-service offerings. Please enquire about pricing and scholarship opportunities here.
Our general auditions, which have passed for 2022, double as the recruitment moment for the Company’s ensembles. We also collaborate annually with Yirra Yaakin Theatre Company to support the Ngalaka Daa Ensemble. Call Out for Ngalaka Daa occurs separately from our other ensembles and is supported by Yirra Yaakin funding sources.
Sign Up form for 2023 General Auditions will appear on our opportunities page towards the end of the year.
