  • 2022 Season General Auditions - self-tape submission

    AUDITION NOTICE
    GENERAL AUDITION SELF-TAPE
    ATYP’S 2022 SEASON

    In 2022, ATYP will open a new 200 seat theatre on Pier 2/3 in the iconic Walsh Bay Arts and Cultural Precinct. This heralds a new era for one of Australia’s oldest and most celebrated theatre companies.

    To mark the occasion, ATYP will stage a season of five professional productions featuring our nation’s exceptional young actors. This season involves two musicals, two dramas and a work that integrates text, improvisation and audience participation.

    ATYP believes every young Australian that wants to audition for their national youth theatre has a right to be seen. So we are calling for self-tapes from actors aged between 15 and 25 (as of the 31st December 2021) – and yes that’s actual age, not how young or old you look.

    We encourage young people from diverse backgrounds, abilities and levels of experience to apply. Actors need to be based in Sydney at the time of rehearsal and production to participate in the 2022 season.

    Actors can audition for the musical productions and/or the plays.

    SUBMISSION INFORMATION:

    Please submit:
    • A recent headshot of yourself
    • Your performance resume/CV (if applicable)
    • A self-tape of yourself performing two (2) short contrasting contemporary monologues (maximum 2 minutes each). Please note: We recommend one piece demonstrates comic timing.

    To audition for our musicals, please also include:
    Two (2) contrasting songs that showcase your vocal range and versatility – one of which must be contemporary musical theatre. You must have either live or recorded accompaniment. (Due to time constraints, we ask that you prepare one portion of each song i.e. maximum one verse and one chorus each)
    • If you have dance training please briefly tell us your dance experience and training (you are not required to dance for the self-test.)

    Self-Tape Instructions:
    • Ensure the room you film in is well lit and quiet. Avoid really bright side light or back light. Make sure the background of the room in which you film is not distracting.
    • Please film in landscape orientation.
    • At the end of your self-tape please announce your full name and age.
    • Please include your best take of each piece and edit them together to be submitted as ONE (1) FILE.
    • Your self-tape file must be titled: YourName_Audition (For example: JaneDoe_Audition)
    Please note: you will need to sign into or create a Google Account to submit the form and upload your files.

    All submissions will be considered for the auditions for individual productions in the 2022 season.

  • AUDITIONS POSTPONED - Soul Trading by Kate Walder & Shack by George Kemp

    AUDITIONS POSTPONED
    Soul Trading
    by Kate Walder & Shack by George Kemp

    This year ATYP is running two different productions on alternate nights at the famous SBW Stables Theatre, home of Griffin Theatre Company. That means young actors have twice opportunity to be cast in an ATYP production!

    SOUL TRADING (directed by Heather Campbell)
    The year is 2079. Humans are created with gene selection technology; artificial Intelligence is part of everyday life and children’s best friends are their Learning Bots. Except for Jerry. Jerry is not like the others. Neither is Neutron Finch, an exceptionally clever Learning Bot who seems to appear out of nowhere. He is smarter than most Bots, funnier and also possibly illegal.

    SHACK (directed by Fraser Corfield)
    Antarctica. A blizzard. Eight schoolkids are stranded in a shack, on the bottom of the world, with a sinister force circling outside… Our young explorers, in the ghostly footsteps of Ernest Shackleton, question their place in the natural and social order of the world as the limits of their courage are pushed into unchartered waters. Safety (and sanity) seems to be drifting farther and farther away.
