Looking for New Zealand’s brightest new stars!

Do you have what it takes to be part of one of New Zealand’s biggest Christmas musical spectaculars?

The producers of Coca-Cola Christmas in the Park, now in its 20th year, are inviting talented new artists to go online and apply to audition for the popular outdoor musical extravaganza.

Artistic producer Kate Ward-Smythe says, “We’re looking for extra-ordinary new talent; performers who can hold their own on the big stage and perform alongside a star studded line-up of some of Australasia’s most popular entertainers. Coca-Cola Christmas in the Park is a unique opportunity for talented newcomers to experience the excitement of performing in front of massive live audiences in Auckland and Christchurch.”

Aspiring performers are encouraged to apply to audition online by submitting photos, video footage or a recording with their application. This is the first stage of the audition process and if the producers are impressed, the applicant will be invited to attend one of the audition workshops being held in Auckland in late July and Christchurch in early August.

So if you think you have what it takes to share the stage with some of New Zealand’s biggest stars go to and click “Auditions”. Your dream could become a reality!
