We are looking for young actors and musicians, aged 11-21, who have a flair for performing and theatre-making. Regardless of experience, we want to meet you!
Your audition is a half-day group workshop led by professional theatre practitioners. They will be looking to gauge how well you dance, sing, act and work as a team. When you arrive you will meet the team, and they will talk you through what to expect. Your group will learn a song together, and you will then be asked to sing either the song you have just learned or a song you have prepared. You will also take part in a group dance and have the chance to show the team some improvised movement.
We will look at your acting skills through short improvised scenes in groups as well as listening to your own monologue if you have one – if you don’t we will have some monologue sheets in the rehearsal room.
Rehearsals run from Monday 5th to Monday 19th of August (excluding Sat & Sun) 10am-4pm
Performances on Tues 21st , Wednesday 22nd, Thursday 23rd, Friday 24th, Sat 25th of August 2019

N.B. COURSE FEE
If successful, there is a course fee. Mill Theatre is a not-for-profit registered charity so our primary source for covering costs of the production will come from course fees and ticket sales.
The fee covers the whole duration of the production, including over 60 hours tuition from leading industry professionals, costume hire, Stage Makeup, theatre hire, sound design and technical staff (the actual cost is far more). We have a comprehensive bursary scheme if required. Please contact Manager@milltheatre.ie to enquire.
