In light of the current Victorian lockdown situation, our season of Peter Pan Jr. is now regrettably cancelled.
The upcoming season of The Long Road has also been affectred by current lockdowns and is postponed to a date to be advised.
This is of course greatly frustrating to cast, crew and patrons alike. We share your disappointment and look forward to more certain times ahead.
Our light is on.
The details for the auditions are as follows:
Cast required 2 male, 2 female to play the following parts:

Do you love theatre but can't see yourself on stage? Do we have an opportunity for you!
Eltham Little Theatre is always looking for volunteers to help out in the many behind-the-scenes roles that play an essential part in staging our productions.
For the technically minded, there is light and sound design, as well as operating light and sound during each show. All the thrills of live theatre from the comfort of our 'bio' box!
For those creative in other areas, there are many opportunities in set design, set building, costume design and sourcing, prop gathering and set dressing.
And of course, no theatre experience is complete without a warm greeting on arrival and friendly treatment throughout the evening. Our front of house staff are responsible for making this happen and are always ready to accept new volunteers.
Enjoy the theatre in a whole new way. Join us!
