“Your workshops are SO valuable Queenie. Sophie has done two of your workshops and the information has DIRECTLY helped her get callbacks in auditions, and obviously to win roles as well!...She had a good run - three professional productions (Annie orphan, Chitty as Jemima, and now in Sound of Music as Louisa)”

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 17 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.
