We are extending the deadline for applications for students under Level 3 restrictions until the end of Wednesday 3rd November.

Please do still contact us if that is still a problem, or if you are not in Level 3 but have been affected by circumstances.

Anyone who feels that they rushed their application to meet the original deadline is able to re-record their audition by this new date if they wish. If you do so, please email the new link to, (making sure that you state your name).

We are all scrambling to adjust to the constantly changing landscape; thank you for bearing with us and sharing your talent and hard work!

Check your email….

An email has been sent out this evening (Tue 3rd November, 8.30pm) to all the personal email addresses given in the applications received for NZSSSO 2021. This is for two reasons; for you to be reassured that we have your application, and to check that all the email addresses are valid. Please check your junk/spam folders as it will not have come from the usual NZSSSO email address. If you do NOT receive this email please contact us so that we can make sure we do not have any missing applications.
