Auditions & Interviews

Our audition process is completely FREE!

WHAT WILL HAPPEN ON THE DAY

It's to be expected that you'll be nervous on the day, however, it's worth remembering the panel have been through countless of auditions before so they know exactly how you you'll be feeling. When you arrive on campus they'll be a member of our team to greet you (they're not on the panel and just here to support you through the process). You'll start the process with a campus tour before splitting off by course, this is when the audition process begins.
Please arrive promptly at 1pm and be prepared to stay until 4pm at the latest.

WHAT ARE THE PANEL LOOKING FOR?

We're interesting in getting to know you as a performer so be simple and truthful in your performance.

SELECTING YOUR MONOLOGUE (ACTING & MUSICAL THEATRE)

You should read the whole of the script from which your monologues are taken so that you have an understanding of the character and context as you may be asked questions on the play and it's characters. We recommend performing your monologue in your own accent. A chair will be available however we don't recommend the use of any additional props.

CHOREOGRAPHING YOUR DANCE (DANCE)

Your solo dance should be your choreography and not that of a teacher or a friend. We may ask you questions on why you chose the music, style or movements within your solo so it's often a good idea to create your solo around a memory, experience, emotion or object.

WHAT TO WEAR

For practical auditions please bring/wear comfortable clothing which you can dance/move in. For the building/theatrical construction workshop please wear appropriate clothing and comfortable stable shoes.

CAR PARKING

If you're visiting the campus for you audition or interview you do not need to pay and display, however, you must report to the campus reception within 15 minutes of arriving on campus to register your vehicle. Vehicles not registered will be issued with a automatic parking charge.
