Get Involved

Auckland Theatre Company’s annual explosion of young talent, stories, ideas, and audiences at the ASB Waterfront Theatre.

We are looking for performers and backstage crew aged 15 – 25 years.

Everyone who registers to be an actor gets an audition, and everyone who registers for crew gets an interview. This is a wonderful way for motivated senior students to get real-world experience on stage and behind the scenes.
