Online Audition Registration for Years 7 and 11 2020 has closed.

If you are seeking enrolment for Years 7 or 11 2021, please register via our online registration form early to mid Term 1 2020.  

Auditions are held annually during the last two weeks of Term 2.

Newtown High School of the Performing Arts does NOT have set open days.

Who can apply for an audition?

Candidates 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 and will run for 3 hours for Year 6 students and 2&1/2 hours for Year 10 students. Please read the descriptions for each discipline by selecting from the menu on the left. Lodge your expression of interest to audition by clicking on the Application form from the menu on the left.


Each audition is assessed 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 assessed by the examiners. These are the conditions under which students and parents/carers must agree to when applying to audition.

Audition Day

On the day of your audition, students register at the Studio Theatre. After the audition, students will be collected and taken back to the Studio Theatre.

Offers and Waiting List

Firm offers of a place are posted to families in Term 3. Students who are not initially offered a place will be placed on the waiting list. Positions on the Waiting List are determined by the student's ranking in their successful discipline. No information regarding student ranking or position on the Waiting List will be given.
