Adam Performing Arts Company is proud to present their second piece of theatre work in their 2013 theatre season Revenge of the Amazons, written by Jean Betts & William Shakespeare.

We are currently taking casting registrations for auditions for the play. We have male and female roles available (mainly female). We are looking for current senior secondary school students or secondary graduates to be cast members of this play produced by APAC. Please view auditions information below.

AUDITION INFORMATION

We are looking for experienced male and female young actors to make up our cast for our 2013 production of Revenge of the Amazons.

We are requiring year 12 or 13 students in 2013, gap year students looking for experience and/or university students.

Our entry age for APAC is 16-years-old as of 1 January 2013.

Auditions will take place at our studio in Onehunga, Auckland.

AUDITION DETAILS

Date: Tuesday 11 December 2012 Time: 10:30am – 3:30pm Location: APAC Studio, 1 Pearce Street, Onehunga, Auckland

Please note we ask you to select your preferred audition time in your audition registration form. Auditions are spaced at 10minute slots. Once you have auditioned you can leave. We require you to be at least 15 minutes early for your audition. We will send out audition pieces to you when we receive confirmation of your audition.

We ask you to select two characters from the script – 1st preference and 2nd preference. We will send out audition pieces for both your preferences. Please read attached document play synopsis and character list before you choose your preferred roles, we also recommend you getting a hold of a copy of the script. These are available to purchase from Playmarket but the Central City Library have a few copies and most high-school drama teachers have copies – if you have studied the text before or performed the text you have an advantage!

To register for an audition please jump onto our website (see link below) and complete the audition registration form. This will then be submitted to us and we will email you with confirmation of your audition. We will then email you 10 days out from your audition with your audition piece(s).
