Joining Stage School Australia is easy!
For Beginners OnStage, Young Australian Broadway Chorus (YABC) and Victorian Youth Theatre (VYT) we accept enrolments three times a year - in February/March, June/July and November each year. No matter where you attend an audition or a trial class, you can choose to attend classes at one of Stage School's many convenient locations across Melbourne. Call today on 8199 8344.
Entry into Beginners OnStage and pre-school Foundation program is through a try-out and into the YABC and VYT is by audition.
Free trial classes are available for the Australian Boys Dance Academy at any time when classes are running up until July. Visit these pages for more information or call 8199 8344 to book.
Our try-outs and auditions are fun, relaxed, free of charge and are designed to give prospective students and parents an insight to our classes.
How it Works
Auditions are conducted in groups of approximately 15-20 participants. Parents are invited to the session as a supportive audience, giving them an insight into our courses. The group, which at times will be split into smaller groups and pairs, is led through various performing activities specific to the stream of training (YABC, VYT or Beginners OnStage). These activities may include improvisation, voice and movement. Assessments are based on participation in these exercises.
Our audition activities have been chosen because they are simple enough for inexperienced students to participate fully, yet allow more experienced students to demonstrate their training and ability.
What happens next?
After the audition/try-out, successful applicants will be offered a placement at their preferred venue. We place each student in a class that matches their age and level of ability.
We ask prospective students to bear in mind three key points:
1. Enjoy yourself!
2. Auditions are simple. So if you do have previous performing arts experience, make sure you participate in all activities to the best of your abilities to show the teaching Director what you can do.
3. Don’t worry if you have never done anything like this before. Lots of young people audition for us without any previous performing experience.
