Learn how to land that dream role with the who’s who of musical theatre

Applications close this weekend (March 18, 2012) for Queenie van de Zandt's Advanced Audition Technique for Musical Theatre Course.

Over the past two years, Australia’s leading teacher of Audition Technique for musical theatre and a musical theatre star herself, Queenie van de Zandt, has regularly brought Australia’s most experienced and respected musical theatre professionals together to lead a series of master classes for emerging performers: The Advanced Audition Technique for Musical Theatre Course.

The course is well known for giving participants a unique opportunity to spend quality time honing their audition repertoire and skills with leading musical theatre directors, choreographers and musical directors, and for the specialist master classes with top producers, agents, publicists, and high profile performers it offers.

Tutors include

· Musical Theatre Star Mitchell Butel (Avenue Q, Dusty, Saturday Night Fever)

· Musical Director Max Lambert (King Kong, Hairspray, Fame)

· Choreographer John O’Connell (King Kong, The Great Gatsby, Moulin Rouge)

· Director Darren Yap (Mamma Mia, Miss Saigon, Steel Magnolias)

· Choreographer and Dancer Adam Williams (SYTYCD, Chicago, Naked Boys Singing)

· With 6 more tutors yet to be announced!

“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, Course Tutor and Musical Director of King Kong, Hairspray, Fame

Feedback has been overwhelming positive but universally students wanted the course to include a performance opportunity, so in 2012 the course will culminate in a cabaret show, “Queenie and Friends”, where students will perform for invited guests.

“Within a fortnight I had been cast in a professional musical!” F. Pearson, Course Graduate 2010
