Auditions have been EXTENDED for Made Up Productions and La Trobe Student Theatre and Film's production of The Blackbird and the Whale!

We will be holding another round of auditions this Sun 31 Jul. If you can't make it, submit a video audition!

We’re looking for actors to audition for the following TWO ROLES:

BLACKBIRD (any gender)
A mysterious, soulful creature with a new sense of comfort for Cora.
Some singing and dancing required for this character.

MULLY (male-identifying)
A cruel, irrational young man skeptical of this new place and these creatures.
Some fighting required for this character but this is choreographed so no experience needed.

We're also after a few more PRODUCTION ROLES, including a sound designer and marketing manager!

If you like the idea of creating soundscapes, costumes, or promotional materials, we'd love to have you.

Express your interest for auditions and crew roles here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeCmSNuo5tl6sFJZsngikMWd0uerdRwZ6UqoJQRg0v8UAWcIA/viewform

Have you caught any shows from the Moat Festival by La Trobe Student Theatre and Film?

This year, more than 60 students, alumni, and staff are involved across six shows, proving it’ll take more than a pandemic to knock Student Theatre down.

There's still time to catch a show before the Easter break, Moat Festival will then continue from April 13-24.

More info and tickets below.
Seeking actors to Audition for my first full length show. There are 3 main roles, 3 support roles and two minor roles. The characters in the script shall be adjusted to your background, so there are definitely degrees of liberte in these roles!

Those who know a second language - regardless of what that second language is are encouraged to audition. Though the script has gender assigned characters at present - these are open to be changed based on whoever is auditioning for the part.

The play is set in the not too distant future and revolves around an old group of friends gathering for a holiday - this during an impending authoritarian take over of a city. One they hedonistic-ally party in - neglecting the impending dystopia. The play contains drug, s*x and violent themes. Though the majority of these themes take place off stage.

If this sounds like your sort of thing, feel free to PM me and I can send you the script.

Thanks for the time given and for reading!

And here you were thinking that La Trobe Student Theatre and Film's Short Works wasn't going to happen this year - PAH!

These rock stars have NINE student-written, student-directed plays, and are creating a filmed live performance of the show - for the audience to watch from the comfort of their own home. 🎥🎥

This is your lucky extra chance to audition to be involved in the project. Head to the event for all the details >> https://www.facebook.com/events/219942942665318/
La Trobe Student Theatre and Film are asking to sign their Open Letter to VC Professor John Dewar as part of the campaign to protect the future of STF.

La Trobe University cut funding to the 3 student organisations – La Trobe Student Union, Bendigo Student Association, and the Wodonga Student Association – by 50% in April 2020. This has had a direct impact on STF with significant cuts to their operational budget and staffing. SSAF funding to these student organisations, and STF, is not secure for 2021 and beyond.

So they are asking for help. Please consider signing their open letter to Vice-Chancellor Professor John Dewar and sharing your own story of what Student Theatre has given you.

➤Link: https://latrobesu.org.au/Forms/because-campaign
