Cirque du Soleil Auditions Roadshow

Do you have a weird but wonderful routine, an unusual skill, or an act that is unlike anything Cirque has ever seen before?

Cirque du Soleil is coming to Australia in February to conduct auditions. And for the first time ever, the company has decided to extend their reach with a nationwide Auditions Roadshow promotion to search for Australia's most unique performing talent.

Auditions will be held in Perth (Tuesday 9 February), Brisbane (Thursday 11 February), Sydney (Friday 12 February) and Melbourne (Saturday 13 February) from 10am to 5pm in each location.

Throughout the year, Cirque du Soleil's casting team auditions the world's most talented circus artists, acrobats, sportspeople, singers, musicians and dancers.

For people who don't fit into one of those categories, the Australian Auditions Roadshow is the opportunity for everyday Australians to showcase their creative performance talent, and to get a taste of the audition process as part of an upcoming television program. Cirque du Soleil has appointed guest talent scouts to search for acts which are completely different, unique and even unusual.

A selection of candidates from each city will then be flown to Melbourne on Sunday 14 February 2016 to perform for the Cirque du Soleil auditions team.

Registration is essential. Applicants must apply for an audition time online by Monday 8 February at 5pm. Applying early is recommended as there is a limit to the number of people that can be registered. To register please visit: www.auditionsroadshow.com

Picnic at Hanging Rock | Malthouse Theatre

The stage adaptation by Tom Wright has adroitly captured the complex nature of this story, one full of contrasts – a fun picnic turned tragedy, English rules and regulations as opposed to the lawlessness of Australian bush and the diminutive schools girls gazing up at a towering rock.

Still Living in the 70s | Melissa Langton and Mark Jones

What a pleasure it is to see Melissa Langton and Mark Jones back in Perth after a few year’s absence. These two are so prodigiously talented they make the show fly past.

F*cking Men | New Theatre

Don’t be put off by the brashness of Joe Dipietro’s title. This is a beautifully written piece with some wonderful insights into not only gay life but the nature of relationships more generally.

Bring It On | Black Box Performing Arts

Clever, fun, sometimes moving, and always bringing it, Bring It On is a hoot, and showcases of some of the best youth performances I’ve ever seen.

Dolly Diamond's 15-Year Anniversary Gala

Dolly and a group of her very talented friends joined forces and hands on Saturday and delivered an incredibly enjoyable evening of razor sharp asides, astute observations and a thunderstorm of glitteringly camp costumes.
