"Join us in the Roaring Twenties..."

The Great Gatsby will weave an original adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby with iconic 1920s jazz music and dance, creating a spectacular  tribute to the Roaring Twenties.
Blending fiction and American history, the production requires a cast of actors, singers and dancers to play fictional characters like Gatsby, Daisy, Nick, Tom and Myrtle as well as Speakeasy singing stars and famous figures from the 1920s like Coco Chanel, Charlie Chaplin and Al Capone. 

Join the cast of THE GREAT GATSBY!

This production requires acting with some dancing and group singing (and individual singing for some roles!). Please note in your enrolment form if your child or teen has any specialised dance or singing experience or would prefer to just act. Note: every performer in this course must learn The Charleston dance.

 

This production course is for Semester 1 2024 and will end in a theatre production at Belconnen Theatre on SUNDAY 30TH JUNE 2024.

This production is suitable for tweens and teens ages 11-18.

TUTORING TEAM: This semester, we are delighted to welcome back Lily Welling to the tutoring team! Lily is excited to share her knowledge from her recent studies at LAMDA in London. Lily will join our existing team including Beya and Ruby.

Secure your place with an initial instalment payment of $199.75 with Afterpay.

REQUIREMENTS

Costumes: All performers are required to source their own 1920s outfit - for many roles this will be a 1920s style flapper dress. These are readily available and inexpensive online. We have found in past productions this is the best way to ensure performers feel comfortable and confident in their costumes. 

Lines: All performers MUST be committed to learning lines outside of class! All performers are expected to return after the mid-semester school holidays with their lines memorised. We thank parents and guardians for monitoring and encouraging their child/teen's progress to ensure they are meeting all goals set by their tutors.

 

WHAT WILL I RECEIVE AFTER ENROLLING?
  • ALL ENROLLED PERFORMERS WILL BE EMAILED AUDITION MATERIAL  (WE WILL WAIT UNTIL WE HAVE A FULL CLASS PRIOR TO SENDING SO THAT EVERYONE HAS THE SAME TIME TO PREPARE). ROLES ARE ASSIGNED BASED ON INDIVIDUAL AUDITION AND GROUP WORK OBSERVED BY TUTORS IN CLASS 1. ALL ENROLLED PERFORMERS RECEIVE A SPEAKING ROLE IN THE PLAY.
