Chelsea Evans

Chelsea Adams is a 2014 graduate and is a Musical Theatre Bachelor student at the Ballarat Academy of Performing Arts.

For her audition, she performed two songs and recited a monologue. The call back audition involved more singing and acting and a dance call at the Academy in Ballarat.
Chelsea was extremely fortunate to be selected from more than 300 people that auditioned from around Australia.

Chelsea has risen to the challenge of being part of a university course that is so physically demanding which requires commitment, patience and independence. With the number of contact hours well over 30 hours per week she has gained valuable time management skills and the ability to thrive under pressure.

Chelsea’s advice to anyone with a deep passion is just to get out there and jump into the opportunity head first. She understands it may seem daunting at first but her motto is “Moments of fear are what make success that much sweeter.”
