Performance Audition Procedure

 

 

Once registrations have closed for auditions, we will schedule auditions and notify all applicants by email.  Mid-year Entry Auditions will be held in early July and you can expect to receive your confirmation by the end of the last week of June.

In the meantime, you should prepare for your audition according to the relevant audition requirements.

If you cannot attend your scheduled time, please follow instructions provided in your confirmation email. 

Interstate applicants

Note:  Interstate auditions are not held for mid-year auditions.  If you are an interstate applicant and cannot travel to Melbourne, please follow the instructions in your confirmation email.  You may request a recorded audition instead.
