What to expect at your audition – acting and musical theatre

Acting: What to expect at your audition

The audition has two parts: a practical workshop and a solo audition and interview.

Practical Workshop

 

You’ll be asked to participate in a group workshop which will last approximately 1.5 hours. The workshop will include exercises and activities which will allow us to see your performance, vocal, movement and listening skills. It’s also a chance for us to see how you collaborate and work with others and use your creativity and imagination.

You don’t need to prepare anything in advance.

Solo audition We’d like you to prepare:

· The performance of two monologues. These should each last no more than three minutes. We suggest choosing something a monologue where the character is similar age to yourself, and in your own accent.

· A knowledge of the play that the monologue is from. We may ask you some questions about the play and why you chose the piece.
