The Audition Masterclass was another highlight, where I had the opportunity to introduce myself to almost 100 actors and welcome them into the Roundhouse Theatre to demystify the audition process ahead of holding five days of general auditions. Having started my career as an actor and knowing intimately how strange the audition process can be, I wanted to find a way to make our space and the process more accessible. I can report that it was a very fruitful exercise!
Overall, we had almost 200 actors through our doors, and I feel energised and excited for the future after meeting so many incredible, talented, and diverse artists who want to collaborate with La Boite. It felt important to me to come into this role demonstrating my commitment to the artists of Brisbane, and this was the first of many steps towards achieving that.
