Casting & Auditions

Be seen on the stage and screen

Adelaide Theatre Academy has valuable contacts in the television, theatre and music industry and over the years, we have found work for hundreds of our enthusiastic young performers!

Many talented Theatre Bugs and Adelaide Theatre Academy students of all ages (the youngest being a newborn baby and the eldest being a ‘Theatre Bugs’ Dad) have gained work through us in t.v, film, catalogues and stage musicals/plays.
