Monday 21/10 Well done today to our first lineup of auditionees. You all gave it everything and some of you improved your standings. We look forward to Wednesday and being able to give you our decisions asap.​
Sunday 20/10 We are extremely proud of all of you fronting today and putting yourselves on the line again. Many of you pushed yourselves beyond your comfort zones and that is such an important part of what you get from our process. Once we hit tap and PDs it was fantastic to see some who had not shown up in workshops, giving themselves a real chance through dance. We are really looking forward to general auditons - make it hard for us by backing yourself to the hilt.
Weds 16/10 This is always one of my favourite times of the whole show, and today was no exception. What an amazing privilege it was to sit and watch/listen to you all giving your hearts. We so admire all of you young men and women who put yourselves on the line today. For many of you it was a huge step and we know that but it is also really important. You have now smashed a glass ceiling by singing solo and it will never be so hard again. I was worried by the huge loss of senior experience - now I don't know why because the talent that rose to the surface today was amazing. We pushed you much further today than we usually do at this workshop and wow did you respond! The cast we select will be awesome!! I know we are going to resurrect this show and bring absolute delight to our audiences. So looking forward to tomorrow and Sunday. Thank you.
Mon 14/10  Hi guys. Until the cast is selected, comms will be via this page.
Thanks for a fantastic first workshop today. Already we can see that our vision to give life and attack to an older show so it engages a 21st century audience, will work. We were delighted by the energy and obvious prep many of you showed. Our challenge to you is to keep building on that. Looking forward to Weds!!
