The 2020 National Musical Theatre Summer School will be 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 one of Australia’s leading ladies of musical theatre, Queenie knows everyone who’s anyone in the “business of show”. Her training has helped hundreds of 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’.
Each day participants will work with a who’s who of musical theatre from across the country participating in intensive workshops and industry masterclasses with our highly talented guest tutors.READ ABOUT AMTA’S GUEST TUTORS
Over the week participants will take part in workshops covering the three disciplines of musical theatre - acting, singing and dancing – working on material from all the latest musicals such as:
SCHOOL OF ROCK
CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY
THE SECRET GARDEN
DEAR EVAN HANSEN
Alongside this, participants will also take part in specialty masterclasses covering disciplines like audition technique, accents, voice work, and improvisation, with parents having an option to also purchase a Certified CV Template and Actors Head Shot Package, to ensure their child leaves the workshop audition ready for 2020.
The jam-packed week will culminate in a Gala Showcase Performance at the Cabaret Cube, where parents, family and friends can come along and watch the talented participants perform alongside Australia’s leading musical theatre performers.
The Summer School will be tailored to suit both Youth Performers (aged 7-13 years), as well as Pre-Professionals (aged 14+ years), and will run from 9:00am-5:30pm every day from January 20th-24th, with the Gala Showcase Performance on the Friday night at 7:00pm.
