25 YEAR'S YOUNG:
2016 is a significant year for SHYAC as we are marking our 25th anniversary. To celebrate this exciting occasion we are going to do something completely different, original and exciting…
SHYAC IS GOING ON TOUR!
This project is very different to previous years and unlike anything undertaken before. The concept is to take a cast of 20-25 youth on the road touring the show to local schools.
The motivation to produce a touring production came about when Council approached SHYAC to participate in this year’s Tulip Time celebrations performing scenes from Alice in Wonderland in the gardens throughout the event. Some time ago the Committee considered the idea of touring a junior production however the right timing and show didn’t present itself. Until now! Combining both school shows and Tulip Time is the perfect combination to implement this project and try something new!
As SHYAC has never produced a musical theatre touring show before the process of auditioning, age- range and cast size is significantly different to past productions.
THIS IS HOW IT’S GOING TO WORK
After the audition process the cast will be announced on MONDAY 27 JUNE on the SHYAC website.
All rehearsals will be held at PDA

· IMPORTANT INFORMATION:
There is a lot to consider before your child auditions so please think about the following: DO NOT audition unless you can attend ALL rehearsals including EVERY DAY of the five day intensive rehearsal period and can be at EVERY PERFORMANCE (including Tulip Time). If any of the above dates clash please do not audition. Please also be aware that your child/ren will be absent FOUR school days. Consider the possibility that your child may not be chosen and the impact this may cause. Also, discuss with your child/ren the solid commitment they will be making if they’re are chosen to be part of the Alice cast. Another consideration is that one sibling may get in and the other/s miss out.
The production team is very much looking forward to this next exciting adventure!
