A musical theatre, intensive 3-day workshop preparing tomorrow’s young artists for a career in the performing arts
For young performers aged 8 to 17 years
Created by Queenie van de Zandt, one of musical theatre’s best-loved stars, Australia’s leading teacher of audition technique and renowned ‘musical theatre star-maker’, this 3-day workshop is designed to help young people excel in professional musical theatre auditions.
With current blockbuster musicals School of Rock, Billy Elliot, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory all featuring young performers in lead roles, Oliver, and Miss Saigon confirmed to be coming to Australia in the next few years, and the new Australian musical Fangirls about to audition teenagers for leading roles in their production in Sydney and Brisbane, there has never been a better time to be a young performer in the arts and to brush up on your audition skills!
Young performers who have participated in AMTA workshops over the past 19 years have dominated the casting in professional musicals – so why not join them – and take that next step toward a professional career in musical theatre!
"Your workshops are SO valuable Queenie. Sophie has done two of your workshops and the information has DIRECTLY helped her get callbacks in auditions, and obviously to win roles as well!...She had a good run - three professional productions (Annie orphan, Chitty as Jemima, and now in Sound of Music as Louisa)…Love your work Queenie!!"

(Sophie was cast in the Brisbane seasons of Annie, as an Orphan, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, as Jemima, and The Sound of Music, as Louisa)
The 3-Day Audition Bootcamp for Kids & Teens combines elements of both these workshops:
Neither the Australian Musical Theatre Academy (AMTA), nor any of our staff, are in any way connected to, or associated with, or endorsed or sponsored by any Australian production company and/or promoter and/or their productions, and are not involved in any way in the casting of such productions. Through our independent, highly successful workshops we’ve been teaching children and adults the skills involved in auditioning for professional musicals, and preparing them to take leading roles in professional shows, for the past 17 years. Obviously we can’t, and won’t ever, guarantee that anyone will be cast in a musical, however many children and adults who participate in our workshops are subsequently cast in professional musicals.
