Masterclass: Audition Technique success
The first of a four part series of masterclasses in theatre skills was delivered by WTC on Sunday 2nd May 2021. Acting expert Dan Haberfield and vocal expert Leah Oswin worked with 50 participants to hone audition skills. Key learnings included 'channel nerves into positive energy' and to 'not take it personally if you don't get selected; reflect then wipe the slate and let go of it all'. Congratulations to all participants who arrived ready to learn and thank you to our experts, Dan and Leah, The Lighthouse Theatre, Regional Arts Victoria and South West Community Foundation. We look forward to the next masterclass.
Change of venue for CATS Info Day
We apologise for any inconvenience, but due to COVID space restrictions, we have had to make a last-minute change of venue for our upcoming Information and Audition Workshop day.
This event will now be held at The Lighthouse Theatre, at the same time as previously advertised – Saturday May 8th from 2pm – 4pm.

WTC's production of the Crucible cancelled
It is with heavy hearts that the Committee has cancelled WTC's production of The Crucible, which was originally intended for 2020. The unpredictability of Covid19 and changed responsibilities in the Directorial team mean that the production is not possible in 2021. The Committee thanks the cast and production crew who joined us in 2020 for their enthusiasm and hope that you will all return for future productions with WTC.
