Are you ready for your next audition?

Are there any burning questions that you want to get answered?

Can’t quite seem to shake those audition jitters?

When all the world’s a stage, it’s nice to get in a little practice now and then.

At our Audition Workshops we share a short synopsis of the script or libretto, as well as the general “audition process” and the skills needed. We’ll let you know what to expect AT the Aloha Theatre audition, including:

  • how to talk to the production team,
  • what to wear and what NOT to wear,
  • how and what to prepare for the audition, and
  • how to enjoy yourself and offer the best audition you can!
