Children's Audition Preparation Workshops

A musical theatre intensive that focuses on upcoming commercial musicals casting young performers
For children aged 7 to 14 years

Created by Queenie van de Zandt, one of musical theatre’s best-loved stars and Australia’s leading teacher of audition technique and renowned ‘musical theatre star-maker’, these workshops are designed to help children prepare for upcoming auditions.

These independent, highly successful workshops are open to children of all ages who want to audition for professional musicals, as the audition skills taught in the workshops are relevant to every professional musical audition.

Children who have participated in these workshops over the past 18 years have dominated the casting in professional musicals.

"I loved learning the songs and routines it was so fun. All Queenie’s advice has been so helpful for me. The best part was to perform what we had learned through the day for our parents. I will take what I’ve learnt with me through my journey towards a successful musical theatre career"

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 18 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.
