Auditions: ANIMAL FARM directed by Netta Yaschin
AUDITIONING AGES 15 – 26
Australian Theatre for Young People is looking for performers aged between 15 and 26 for a new stage adaptation of Animal
Farm. George Orwell’s classic tale of corrupted revolution will be brought to life with startling imagination by director
N…etta Yaschin. The animals of Manor Farm have a vision for a better world. But there is a fragrance to power that can
overwhelm the senses.
This new adaptation brings a tribal energy to one of the greatest stories of the 20th Century. An ensemble of actors aged
between 15 and 26 will turn Studio 1 into a utopian world before revelling in its demise. Using physical theatre, ensemble
improvisation and excerpts straight from the novel this production is a joyous theatrical revolution.
The production is looking for actors from diverse ages and backgrounds. Strong dance and physical theatre skills are an
advantage but not essential.
The production will also make use of actors able to sing and play musical instruments.
