Audition Portal

The Australian Musical Theatre Festival is your time to shine! No more waiting in the wings – this is your chance to perform live at the Festival. Please note - the audition portal is now closed for 2022

Welcome to the AMTF audition portal.

*Please note - the audition portal is now closed for 2022*

We are passionate about nurturing talent, not just in our workshops and classrooms but in performance. If you would like to join the many headliners and special guests on stage, if you want to enhance your process through a crafted product, if you are wanting to upskill or enhance your work through performance, then we want to hear from you!

The Festival has many performance opportunities open to you and we are always eager to see who is out there. We do not mind what your age or experience level, we want to encourage you to audition.

This year, we are looking for performers to participate in;

‘Songs for a New World’, ‘Foyer Door Concert’, ‘The Hope Concert’, ‘Ghostlight’, ‘Here’s to the Ladies’, ‘Busker’s Alley’, ‘A Celebration of Australian Musical Theatre’ and ‘The Sound of Musicals’.

If you are interested in participating in any of these, please send in a video of one song and if there is something in particular you’d like to be considered for, please state in your video. Alternatively, you can just submit a ‘general audition’ of a Musical Theatre song and we can evaluate where you best fit.

Each performance requires something particular, for instance the ‘Celebration of Australian Musical Theatre’ requires a piece by an Australian composer or lyricist, ‘Here’s to the Ladies’ requires a song made famous by a particular female presenting star you like…so we encourage you to research the event through our website and prepare a Musical Theatre song you feel shows you in the best light and is most appropriate for the desired performance.

Please note that you can choose a song of any age or gender expression, even if it is different from your own. We only require ONE song so make it your best!

In addition, please be aware that there are several masterclasses presented in conjunction with the Theatre Council of Tasmania that you can also apply to perform in, notably,

Philip Quast, Acting the Song Masterclass

Chloe Dallimore, Triple Celebration Masterclass

Paulini and Tyran Parke, Acting through Singing Styles Masterclass

Other classes may ask for you to bring songs, but you do not have to apply for those.

Successful applicants will be contacted by April 1st 2022.
