The Musical Theatre Intensive Weekly Masterclasses

The Musical Theatre Intensive Weekly Masterclasses in Melbourne and Sydney will be led by two of Australia’s most highly esteemed veterans of musical theatre, Queenie van de Zandt (Melb) and Margi de Ferranti (Syd).

Queenie van de Zandt is the co-founder of The Australian Musical Theatre Academy and the creator of The Musical Theatre Intensive Weekly Masterclasses. Combining 20 years of studying audition technique with her 30+ years as a multi-award winning performer of musical theatre, Queenie developed an unique audition and performance practice, that has helped her students gain lead roles in shows such as Mary Poppins, & Juliet, Wicked, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Hairspray, and Come from Away, to name just a few. It is this success that has seen her hailed in the press as a musical theatre star-maker’.

Margi de Ferranti is one of Australia’s leading ladies of musical theatre, having performed leading roles in iconic shows such as Mamma Mia, Grease, Les Misérables, Aspects of Love, Fame and In the Heights. For the past 20 years she has been focusing her time on working with up and coming stars as well as industry professionals, teaching at major performing arts schools such as NIDA, AIM, and Brent St as well as at her own studio, Margi de Ferranti’s Vocal Expertise.

In addition to working with Queenie (in Melb) & Margi (in Syd) learning AMTA’s unique audition practice, over the 18 masterclasses, the talented 10 participants in each stream, will get to work with and showcase their talents to Australia’s leading musical theatre directors, actors, choreographers, casting agents, vocal coaches, writers and musical directors.

We are looking for 10 talented performers in Sydney and Melbourne, to work exclusively with our incredible line up of leading theatrical creatives in each of the following streams:


13 - 17 years

As there are only 10 spots available in each weekly masterclass, participants will be chosen through an online audition process. The Musical Theatre Intensive Weekly Masterclasses will be tailored not only to the skills and challenges of the 10 successful participants but will also adapt to respond to the theatrical marketplace and the auditions and opportunities that present themselves during the course.

“Demand for van de Zandt's services as an audition coach…has skyrocketed.”
