Auditions: The Orphanage. A new exciting Youth Storytelling Ensemble is being developed at Abbotsford Convent. In its initial stage of development I’m calling for auditions to create a preliminary ensemble to prepare a Christmas show to be shown at the Convent, to publicize what a youth storytelling ensemble can be, engaging potential young performance storytellers and the wider community.
I’ve applied for funding through City of Yarra to support developing this as an ongoing part of the artistic and cultural life of the community. My goal is to develop and mentor an ensemble that operates as its own supportive creative community for young emerging performance artists/storytellers.
My background is as a professional storyteller/actor/director based at Abbotsford Convent, with experience in storytelling, performance making and arts education. The project has received enthusiastic support from Abbotsford Convent, St. Martins’ Youth Theatre and Platform Youth Theatre.
Please circulate this call for auditions through your networks.

Applications close: Midnight Wednesday 28th August. Auditions held: Saturday 31st August.
