Over one intensive week from April 12 – 16, we will be putting our young actors, singers, dancers and muso’s through their paces.
Over five full days, actors between 9 and 17 years of age will be cast in two of six different plays and/or musicals, and rehearse these shows into full scale productions for production in term 2 and 3. Performers will learn the lines, blocking, characterisation, scenes, songs, harmonies, dances and much more, advancing the shows far more than weekly rehearsals allow. It will be very busy and very challenging, but we promise it will be worth it.
If this is your first experience with us, IYT is a family of young actors, writers, directors, singers, visual storytellers and musicians where each individual feels valued and respected for their unique contribution and abilities. We get to know every child or teen and invest in their creative journey and emotional wellbeing over all else.
So whether you are an IYT company member or not, you will experience a week of invaluable training with NIDA, Bell Shakespeare and WAAPA acting, singing or dancing coaches and advance your professional skills. If you are not currently in the company but would like to join, this is a perfect opportunity to work with our directors, get to know the other company members and see if you are in a position to take it further. You might even end up in a cast of an IYT play and perform with us at the Sydney Fringe Festival
