So you love performing, writing, acting, telling jokes, writing sketches or simply just hanging around and having a great time with a bunch of funny people? Then we highly recommend you audition for the 2018 MELBOURNE UNI LAW REVUE, the premier student comedy revue in Australia!
The MELBOURNE UNI LAW REVUE is a fantastic experience for anyone who loves performing, writing or telling jokes, and is a great stepping stone for anyone who wants to explore a career in comedy. Past Law Revue graduates have gone on to star in Films, TV Shows and Theatre productions and are some of the biggest names in Australian comedy.
Not only is it a fantastic starting point for aspiring performers, writers and comedians, but the process of writing and rehearsing sketches and putting on a show for thousands to see makes the Law Revue an incredibly enjoyable and rewarding experience. And we raise money for charity in the process!
So you’d like to audition? Please do! Here are some answers to some of the questions you might have about our auditions.
What happens in the audition?
The first audition is really low key and great fun, and just a chance for us to get to know you. There will be a few theatre games and improvisation activities, but don’t be nervous! These games are really fun and we’re all supportive – all the judges have come through the same auditions, so we know how you’re feeling. We just want to get a feel for you and your sense of humour. It’s not like reality TV, you won’t be asked to make an omelette or sing a song to judges turned away – but doing either, or both at the same time, will certainly give you bonus points.
Who can audition?
ANYONE can audition. ANYONE! No prior experience necessary, and you don’t need to be a Law Student or even attend Melbourne Uni. You don’t even need to have an emotional story of overcoming crippling adversity like all the contestants on The Voice have. If you love performing, acting, writing or comedy, we want you!
For the writers!
So this year we’ve done something for the stage shy! We know you have the comedic genius but the prospect of actually standing on stage to you is super terrifying! Have no fear you CAN still be part of the Law Revue! If you’d like to be on the Writing Team please send us a a written sketch to firstname.lastname@example.org by 11.59PM 19 MARCH 2018.
Your time is now keyboard warriors!
