Frequently Asked Questions

I don’t have any experience with singing, dancing or acting, can I still be in the show?

Will I have to audition?

Since it's the school holidays and my parents need to work, can I be dropped off early and picked up late?

What about lunch?

Apart from working really hard on the show, we will have loads of fun during the week. Everyone will participate in singing, dancing and acting rehearsals, group games and some chill out time to get to know new friends. During the week performers will experience the magic of theatre and gain a credit for their performing resume. Performers will also gain confidence, develop new skills and leave with life-long memories, new friends and an unforgettable experience.

What about costumes?

Who is Melbourne Kid's Theatre?

Our creative team has years of experience working with children in many different capacities.  They are all theatre professionals who are qualified to work with children. Everyone will be in possession of a Victorian Working With Children Check and a current police background check. There will be a certified first aider on site at all times, and contact numbers are provided for parents to get in contact with the creative team if required. We are not a registered care venue with The Department of Education and Care, however, we will be complying with the school age care ratio for Victoria which is 1:15 in order to ensure the safety of your children.

Yes! If you require outside of rehearsal hours care, please contact us.  Children can use the time to practice the show or just relax! Early drop off and late pick up will need to be booked in through the creative team in order to ensure that there are enough staff on site to accommodate for your child.

What will I get out of performing in the show?

Performers are required to bring their own lunch, snacks and a water bottle. There is a microwave and fridge on site at the rehearsal venue. We ask that you avoid high allergen foods such as nuts and peanut butter. Performers will get plenty of breaks throughout the day for snacks and water. If your child has any allergies, you will be required to bring along their emergency medication and their allergy management plan.

If the performer would like to be part of the ensemble of the show then an audition is not required, just a video introduction can be sent in. If the performer would like be considered for a lead or supporting role then they will need to audition.

Everyone is welcome to perform in a Melbourne Kids Theatre show regardless of their  experience. Some people will have years of experience and others will never performed before. This is a great way to learn new skills and experience the magic of theatre.

Melbourne Kids Theatre will provide performers with full costumes for Aladdin Kids. Camp Rock performers will be playing teen characters and will therefore need to provide some of their own clothes and Melbourne Kids Theatre will provide some costume elements. Performers for both shows will need to provide some basic items of their own items such as undergarments, theatre blacks and shoes. Once performers are cast, they will be informed of their exact requirements.
