JULY 2024 PRODUCTION

Harry Rings, Lord of the Potters by Alison Chaplin (Junior actors up to age 14). Directed by Alicia Zorkovic
A lively, award-winning comedy pastiche in which well-known characters from the fantasy genre come together. Harry Rings, wizard potter at Hogwash School, and Mojo the hoblin – a cross between a hobbit and a goblin – unite against a common enemy ('he who cannot be named but is called Fred') to prevent him from gaining knowledge of the goblet of youth. Fast and funny!

PLUS

ShakeSPLOSION!!! by Andrew Geha (Senior actors up to 20 years). Directed by Jethro Pidd
A madcap dash through the comedies and tragedies written by the Bard. From (nearly) every bloody death in the Tragedies to every girl who dressed up as a boy in the Comedies, it's like watching Shakespeare's canon fired out of a cannon—scattering prose, verse and characters across the stage. Forty minutes of sword fights, word fights, witches, ghosts and murder!! Performed by teenagers!!!

Do I actually need to be at all rehearsals?

Yes! It is imperative that you are available for the full week. To stage a whole play in 5 days of rehearsals is a big task. When you are not rehearsing for your scenes with us, you will be busy with our Assistant Directors either developing your character, running lines, working on your physicality, vocal work or assisting other students. We require all actors all the time to enable the quality of our productions.

​​What is the cost?

$480 which includes:

  • All tuition during auditions and rehearsal (45+ hours - more than a semester of weekly lessons)

  • All character specific costumes

  • Actually Acting t-shirt to wear at rehearsals

  • Invited guest speakers/workshop facilitators during the week

  • Individual audition time

  • Welcome lunch following read through; shared meal before show on Day Six

  • Three fully staged performances with professional lights/sound

  • Professional headshot in digital and printed (6×8) format

  • Digital copies of all professional production shots

How do I register to audition?

First, read all the information below thoroughly and ensure you can commit to all the rehearsal/performance dates. If you'd like more information about the process, please read our blog. Then download the Audition Form and Pieces and book an Audition Time. You will be required to pay $5 per audition, which forms part of your production fee if you are cast. If you do not receive/accept a role, or cancel the audition with at least 2 hours notice, it will be refunded. 

Our expectations from you for auditions

  • Please learn the part you are auditioning for. It will show us you are dedicated and ready to work.

  • We will ask you to (cold) read another role, please prepare for this by reading ALL roles beforehand.

  • Do NOT try to make it perfect, we would like to work with you in the audition and we want to know what you are capable of. We are not looking for a polished performance at the audition.

  • You do not have to accept a part we offer you, but once you do, it is expected that you will commit to this project. This means prioritising and only accepting the role if you are prepared to give it 100%.

 

 

Our commitment to you

  • We know that young actors can have incredible talent and we want you to have a chance to utilise and expand on that. We are 100% committed to teach and foster your abilities, and will run our rehearsals as a professional development process.

  • We are experienced teachers as well as professional actors ourselves, and are joined by a supportive team to help bring this project together, within a nurturing and kind environment.

  • By bringing together like-minded individuals from different parts of Adelaide, we aim to foster a dynamic and supportive environment in which to develop creativity.

Our expectations from our cast

  • You are expected to arrive in good time for rehearsals, and respect your directors and fellow cast/crew members. Bad behaviour will not be tolerated. If you are running late you will let us know as soon as practical. All rehearsals are compulsory unless discussed prior.

  • Mobile phones are to be on silent and put away except on breaks.

  • You will learn your lines prior to rehearsals commencing, with scripts down by Day 2. It is impossible to fully engage with a character whilst holding a script.

  • You must be prepared to take risks and trust your fellow performers.

  • In order to cover the enormous cost involved with mounting a production – all cast are expected to sell at least 6 tickets to the production. If everyone does this, we can continue to keep the production fee low.
