Auditions - The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

From $0 aud
Sun Jun 23, 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM (AEST)

The Audition Experience

The best way to learn is through practice. In the MSTYP production of ‘The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe’ young people are mentored by industry professionals to perform 21 times in front of an audience of general public families.

Auditions themselves are a great experience. Get involved in the creative process, work with professional artists for a day, have fun creating with other young people…and while we’re casting for 12 actors there’s also more positions available than just onstage! There’s also understudying, stage management, technical theatre, front of house, other creative mentorships and more. Auditions are open for young people aged 12+, and we encourage anyone who is interested to attend.

We aim for everyone who auditions to be involved in some capacity.

Characters include: Peter, Susan, Lucy and Edmund (the four children who journey into Narnia), Mr and Mrs Beaver, Mr Tumnus the faun, The White Witch, Aslan, the Professor and more! There’s lots of scope for characterisation, music, ensemble work and more. We want to see what YOU bring to the process.

This is one of our two mainstage productions of our Children’s Theatre season in 2019. Directed by Kate Walder - find out more here
