Audition tip from Olivia (Musical Director): Choose a contemporary/modern music theatre song that best reflects your vocal capabilities. To be sung in Australian accent if applicable. Further aspects of character and accent will be addressed during the acting portion of your audition (script reading). 


AMTC are excited to be staging, from November 1-10, the musical version of Baz Luhrmann’s much-loved modern Australian classic, Strictly Ballroom – a joyous, colourful, hilarious and romantic tale about finding your true voice and dancing to your own beat.

Dancers, singers, actors, musicians and crew interested in joining our Strictly Ballroom cast are urged to attend this information evening on the 30th of May in the Sunset Room at Bomaderry Bowling Club for a 7pm start where we’ll outline the production and characters as well as detailing audition and rehearsal requirements.

Meet Scott Hastings. Ballroom Dancer. Future champion. Rebel. When Scott’s radical dance moves raise eyebrows with the Australian Federation, he finds himself dancing with Fran, a beginner who has no moves at all. Inspiring each other, the couple find the courage to defy both convention and their families – and discover that to be a winner, your steps don’t need to be strictly ballroom…

Adapted from Baz Luhrmann’s beloved and award-winning film, STRICTLY BALLROOM has been transformed into a glorious stage musical.
