“Exciting and completely inspiring to connect with the top people in all areas of the Australian musical theatre industry. They were all so generous with their knowledge and encouragement.

I feel so much more confident and knowledgeable about auditioning and performing now...I have been accepted into the University of Cincinnati - College Conservatory of Music. I am the first Australian accepted into the program. I’m very excited to share all of the awesome techniques you have taught me and get to know more about the American musical theatre industry.

TUTORS

"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."
Neil Gooding – Producer
(Hayes Theatre Co, The Bridges of Madison County, Sweet Charity, Dogfight)

“Many auditionees long for some feedback after their audition. This almost never happens. This brilliant course is constructed so that you can find out exactly where you went right - and wrong. Industry professionals can offer insights and shortcuts that sometimes mean the difference between landing a role and working tables.”
Max Lambert – Musical Director
(King Kong, Hairspray, Fame)

"… many young hearts had been opened, careers inspired, techniques learned, and insight gained into the music theatre industry. By their own gushing admission, the journey that the students had embarked upon with Queenie was of significant depth, in some cases even life changing."
Anne-Maree McDonald - Musical Director & NIDA Lecturer
(Jekyll & Hyde, Floyd Collins, Hats Off)
