Gateway to our premier offerings…
In March each year, the company holds general auditions for its Productions, Ensembles and Strategic Initiatives. Our 2022 General Auditions were held across three days from 25-27 March. The next opportunity to audition will arise again in early 2023. Dates to be advised. We will be looking for performers, theatre makers, writers and people who just love theatre!
Who is eligible?
ALL young people are encouraged to apply, especially people who may identify as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander, CaLD (Culturally and Linguistically Diverse), LGBTQI+ and people living with disability.
You must be aged 13-25 years at time of audition, with one exception: Young people aged 11-12 are eligible to audition for our new “Jnr-Junior Ensemble”. For more about our ensembles, see here.
How does it work?
Auditions are two hours long, in workshop format. There will be some group activities as well as presenting your monologue or story.
Auditionees are required to prepare one monologue (contemporary or traditional) of up to 2 minutes in length. There are lots available online like:
Choose one you connect to. You can write your own monologue if you prefer, or simply tell us a story in 2 minutes max.
General Auditions will be held in the WAYTCo Studio (King Street Arts Centre). Please wear loose comfy clothes that are easy to move in.
What if I don’t get in?
Selection for casting opportunities is not guaranteed as an outcome of auditioning. If you miss out, you can still join us for programs not restricted by audition entry and you are encouraged to enquire about Playwriting opportunities, Production and Technical Assistant roles, and Arts Management internships.
