Children's Audition Preparation Workshops

Created 18 years ago by well-known musical theatre performer Queenie van de Zandt, AMTA's Children's Audition Preparation Workshops have become renowned for having the highest success rate of students cast in professional musicals. Having studied audition technique for over 20 years, Queenie has developed a unique audition practice, that has helped her former young students gain lead roles in shows such as School of Rock, The Sound of Music, and Matilda. It is this success that has recently seen her hailed in the press as a ‘musical theatre star-maker’.

Run over a jam-packed, full day, children are given the knowledge they need to audition successfully through our two-pronged approach – they learn all the material from the show that they need to know to feel confident in the audition and are also taught Queenie's unique approach to auditions which has seen hundreds of children and adults she’s worked with be cast in musicals.  Parents are also sent a guide to help navigate their child through the audition process.

And like all of our workshops and courses at The Australian Musical Theatre Academy (AMTA), during the workshop they’ll be working with Australia’s leading performing and creative artists - the people who create and/or perform in Australia’s most prominent, commercial musicals.

Our workshops are comprehensive and fun with your children leaving the workshop:

As well as that, parents leave the workshop:

“Queenie was truly instrumental in preparing my daughter for the Les Miserables audition, which resulted in her obtaining the part of Young Cosette. My daughter learns so much yet has so much enjoyment at the same time. Queenie has the perfect knack of working diligently towards a goal, building skills and experience along with having fun….I have full trust in Queenie teaching my daughter what she needs to know, giving her the best opportunity to succeed in musical theatre.”
