Audition process

The audition process follows three stages, commencing with workshops in each of the three art forms, solo presentations in each art form, followed by an interview.

Stage 1
Candidates will need to participate in workshops in all three art forms.

Stage 2
Candidates will deliver a solo in all three art forms, in line with the following requirements:
Drama solo: this can be any published speech or monologue that can be delivered ‘off the page’
Singing solo: a full song from any contemporary material (this can either be acapella or with a backing track) Dance solo: a maximum two-minute piece, with or without music.

Stage 3
Candidates will then be invited to interview.

If you are over 16 with talent, enthusiasm and commitment and you meet the following entry requirements, we want to hear from you!

Singing Strong
Drama and Dance Highly Capable

We recognise that one of the above art forms may be new to you. In this instance we would assess potential to achieve the above.
