I'm don't have any experience dancing/acting/singing. Can I still join?

Absolutely!  Showtime is all about trying new things, working together and making heaps of new friends. It doesn't matter what your skill level is - we would love to have you join us in 2024.

What happens at auditions?

You'll get to hear all about our 2024 production "Midnight's Wish", we'll teach you a few of the songs from the show and you'll have a sing as a part of a group (so no solo singing required!). You'll then learn some dance moves, and read a part of our script, and get measured by our friendly costume team.

And while we call it an audition, it's really an opportunity for us to get to know you and for you to get to know us. Everybody aged under 26 who applies for cast gets in!

How much does it cost?

$65 for our new-to-cast members and $55 for our returning cast.

For our new cast members it also includes your Strzelecki Showtime scarf, woggle and badge that you'll receive at our special presentation day in August.

To keep our cast fees low, Strzelecki Showtime fundraises through the Scout Monster Raffle, a trivia night and a sock fundraiser, which cast are expected to participate in.
