The Musical Theatre Intensive Weekly Masterclasses

The Musical Theatre Intensive Weekly Masterclasses are curated and led by musical theatre star and Australia’s leading teacher of audition technique for musical theatre, Queenie van de Zandt. Having studied audition technique for over 20 years and with 30 years as a performer, Queenie has developed a unique audition and performance practice, that has helped her former students gain lead roles in shows such as Shrek, Ragtime, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Come from Away, Book of Morman, Beautiful: The Carole King Musical, Pricilla: Queen of the Desert, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, The Sound of Music, Grease, Matilda, Singin’ in the Rain, and Les Miserables, to name just a few. It is this success that has seen her hailed in the press as a ‘musical theatre star-maker’.

Queenie will run a number of masterclasses each Term, but what makes the Musical Theatre Intensive Weekly Masterclasses so unique, is that participants not only get to learn Queenie’s audition practice, and work with her on various aspects of theatre performance and career development, they also get to work with, and be seen by Australia’s leading musical theatre directors, actors, choreographers, casting agents, producers, writers, musical directors and theatre makers.

We are looking for 10 talented performers in Sydney and Melbourne, to work exclusively with this incredible line up of Master Artists over 5 months, in each of the following streams:


14 - 17 years

8 - 13 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 5-month period.

“Queenie's master classes are an incredible introduction to the industry for newcomers – and a wonderful brush-up for working professionals.  I was hugely impressed by the quality of the participants – and the teachers and tutors are a who's who of the entertainment industry.  I cannot recommend this course highly enough.”
