Who can apply for an audition?

Canidates must be Australian Citizens or holders of a visa granting 'Permanent Resident Status' in Australia to be eligible to apply.

Students can audition in one or two of the three performing arts disciplines (Dance, Drama and Music) offered at our school. Our auditions are conducted as group auditions which run between 2½ - 3 hours. Please read the descriptions/requirements for each discipline by selection from the menu on the left. Lodge your expression of interest to audition by clicking on the Application Form.


Each audition is assesed on its own merits. The examiner's decision is final and no appeal can be made except on procedure. Information on individual student's performance in their audition will not be given. The purpose of the audition is for the school to select the top students as assesed by the examiners. These are the conditions under which students and parents/cerers must agree to when applying to audition.

Audition Day

On the day of audition, students register at the Studio Theatre, Newtown High School of the Performing Arts, Newman Street, Newtown. After the auditions, students are to be collected from the Studio Theatre.


Firm offers of a place in Year 7 or Year 11 2021 will be posted to families in Term 3.
