FESTIVAL PROGRAM

A QUICK GUIDE TO HELP YOU PLAN YOUR PERFECT FESTIVAL

There’s a lot to choose from and you can pick, just be sure to check the classes times don’t clash! 

WORKSHOPS - Are split into three streams; Lovers & Youth, Future Stars, Makers.  If you are interested in all 4 workshops within the same stream, the packages are the way to go – you will save money and receive a FREE ticket to ‘Once in a Blue Moon’, our concert celebrating Australian Musicals with our wonderful guest artists and a FREE ticket to attend the Festival Mega Workshop. Outside of the packages, you can mix and match. You do NOT have to stay in your stream. Read more about our these on the Lovers & Youth, Future Stars and Makers pages.

SPECIAL EVENTS - Are a mix of classes, performances and panels, available to everyone and to be booked individually. Read more about our these on the Special Events page.

PERFORMANCE -If you are not interested in learning ABOUT musicals and just want to SEE some, then this is for you! There are 11 electrifying performances spread across 5 days in various venues, truly offering something for everyone. Read more about our these on the Performance Program page.

GET ON STAGE - If you are interested in performing in the shows, submissions are now open to submit a video of you performing online for our casting director, Natalie Gilhome to review. If you want a solo at the ‘Sound of Musicals’ concert or love ‘The Boy from Oz’ then you can apply to be a part of it; performing on the Princess Theatre Stage.
