Established in 2016, Fab Nobs Junior is a program designed to foster young talent in theatre, providing them valuable learning experiences and memories that last a lifetime.
Every year young people aged between 8-18 are welcome to audition for our junior shows, where they have the opportunity to demonstrate vocal, acting and dance skills in front of an experienced and supportive team.
Cast members come into a positive and encouraging environment, where every cast member is valued and important. Our unique venue lends to smaller casts than many other junior productions, allowing a high amount of individualised attention between cast and production teams and close relationships to develop between all cast members.
In order to give casts the best possible school / life balance, we perform all our shows and have production week during the July school holidays.
The young performers involved not only learn to put on a spectacular show, but also benefit from the many skills and attributes associated with theatre, including; self-confidence, discipline, character, cooperation, self-esteem, creativity, teamwork, leadership, responsibility and commitment. Involvement also helps young people improve their time management, communication and interpersonal skills (Musical Theatre International, 2013). Cast and families are also encouraged to become involved in the production in areas beyond performance, such as set painting, costuming, social media, prop construction and more, allowing even more learning experiences within musical theatre.
Since the program was established we have also put on a junior musical theatre workshop every September school holidays, allowing many young people to learn valuable new skills in a friendly and collaborative environment.
Fab Nobs Theatre is committed to providing a child safe environment where children and young people are safe and feel safe, and are given the tools to safely disclose any risks to their safety. We engage only the most suitable people to work with children and have high quality volunteers from production team to backstage crew to committee members, all of whom must have an current Working With Children Check card. Fab Nobs shares information appropriately and lawfully with other organisations where the safety and wellbeing of children is at risk; and values the input of and communicate regularly with families and carers.
