Please apply by Friday 15th of April.  

An intimate production of this epic play.
Directed by Melanie Camp as part of the Master of Theatre Arts (Directing) programme.

Auditions for the role of Hamlet will be on SATURDAY 9TH OF APRIL
and all other roles will be on SATURDAY 16TH OF APRIL.

Guys, please let me know if you want to audition for the role of Hamlet and I will book you a time on the 9th. Please prepare one of his monologues (20 lines or so is enough). 

There will be two group auditions on the 16th lasting approximately 2 hours. 

Please let me know whether you’d prefer to come at 10.30am or 2.30pm. You do not have to prepare anything but please be familiar with the play and the characters you are interested in playing. 

There will be recalls on Sunday 17th April. 

I’m looking for a cast of twelve to play all the roles so flexibility and adventurousness are key. I am not necessarily looking to cast to age. 

There will be a ten week rehearsal period (evenings and weekends) from mid-May.

Performance dates are 22nd July – 6th August in the Basement Theatre, Te Whaea, Wellington.

Directed by Melanie Camp, designed by Julian Southgate, with music by Luke Di Somma. 

Part of the Master of Theatre Arts (Directing) through Toi Whakaari and Victoria University. 

So to sum up: 
Please email Mel Camp at with the following

  • Which group you want to attend on Saturday the 16th
  • Guys – if you want a slot to audition for Hamlet himself. 

Auditions will be at Te Whaea (where Toi Whakaari and the Dance School live) 11 Hutchison Rd, Newtown (at the end of Wallace St).
