Brisbane Junior Theatre auditions generally take place 2 -3 weeks prior to a production.

  • Auditions are required if you want a lead or minor role, featured dancer or soloist.
  • We guarantee that everyone who auditions will be included in the cast.
  • We double cast all performances to provide multiple opportunities and experience.
  • If a young performer wants to be in a production without an audition they will be placed in a chorus role.

HOW TO AUDITION

  1. Download and complete the Production Registration Form
  2. Book an audition time with Debbie on 0438 896 436
    • Auditions are generally on a Saturday at 1pm, 2pm or 3pm.

PREPARE FOR AN AUDITION

  1. The actor is required to sing a song, dance, and memorise a Monologue.
    • The dance choreography is taught on the day.
  2. Memorise the song and monologue with the required characterisation.
    • Younger children may memorise a sentence or two instead of the entire monologue.
  3. Research and watch the musical.
