Hobart Gang Show is an inclusive production.  Auditions are designed to help us find the best place for you in the show, ideally on stage.  Everyone who auditions will be made welcome, regardless of their ability and the audition is usually as a small group.  We endeavour to have everyone involved, but the final number of actual cast does need to be limited due to stage size, dressing rooms, logistics and Covid-19 regulations.

There are three components of the audition - acting, singing and movement.  Book an audition from the times listed below and answer some simple questions to confirm your audition.  Family members please note each individual person must complete a separate booking.  Once you have booked your audition you will receive a confirmation E-mail along with further information.

To start the process, you will need to choose the time that suits you best

If this is your first audition it would be appreciated if you could forward a recent photo of yourself and brief resumé. The resumé needs only to be a dot point list of what you have done/are doing in Scouting or Guiding and any experience with theatre, acting, singing or dancing.  If you are interested in auditioning for a solo/main singing or acting role please indicate on the audition form. Remember auditions are just part of the process for any stage production, there is no need to be worried about anything, but if you have any concerns please do not hesitate to contact and discuss your concerns.  


Rehearsals start in May and are usually held weekly on a Sunday (1.00 - 5.00 p.m.).  The first and last weekends of the July school holidays have a rehearsal on both the Saturday and Sunday.  There is also a Gang Show camp at the Girl Guide Camp - Orana (Roches Beach), which is a very important full weekend.  Everyone needs to ensure they are definitely available for the camp which is to be held on the 29th and 30th and July.

Performance dates are 17th, 18th and 19th August, 2023.  


If you wish to audition, but feel more comfortable wearing a mask, please be assured this is allowed.  If it is deemed necessary for you to remove your mask to enable your facial expression/s to be seen or to hear you more clearly, you may be asked to move to a separate area of the hall or outside (physically distanced from others), but we will ensure you are comfortable with this.  

Any questions, contact Denice on 6224 1105 (after 6.00 p.m.)
