What we are looking for: 

Performers aged between 17-26 years of age who are interested in creating performance through their own lived experience in collaboration with Artistic Director James Berlyn and a diverse and supportive group of artists. 

We encourage everyone to apply, and especially performers who may identify as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander, CALD (Culturally and Linguistically Diverse), LGBTQI+ and peoples living with disability.

When is it? 

These auditions will take place at the King Street Art Centre.

5-9pm, 27 November (Friday)

1-5pm,  28 November (Saturday) 

What is it? 

The audition will take on a group format. With up to 20 people per audition, we are looking for a collaborative, generous and enthusiastic approach in the room.

What do I need to prepare? 

Please have prepared a 2-3 minute story to share within the audition about a moment in your life when you felt valued or undervalued. This does not have to be written or memorised, however please make sure this is a story of yours that you would feel comfortable sharing in a group scenario. 

You do not need any previous theatre experience to audition, just a passion for performance and storytelling!
