Audition Announcement

Strictly Ballroom - IMTC's Main 2018 Production

This is a fantastic opportunity to be a participant in a great new presentation of one of Australia's iconic musical theatre productions. 


Featuring songs from the 1992 hit film, including "Love Is In The Air', "Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps', and 'Time After Time', as well as new songs from internationally-acclaimed artists and composers such as Sia, David Foster and Eddie Perfect, with orchestrations by Simon Hale. 


This production provides the opportunity to work with experienced professional theatre practitioners, and is a wonderful opportunity for personal development. 


Strictly Ballroom is produced by Ipswich Musical Theatre Company and follows sell-out seasons of The Phantom of the Opera, Mary Poppins, WICKED and Les Misérables. 


This is an amateur musical theatre production, performing with a professional orchestra.
