The Audition

The format of the audition will be designed to allow each pupil an equal opportunity regardless of experience. Shortlisted candidates will be invited to an audition on either the morning or afternoon of Friday 9 December.

The auditions will be held in a small workshop group, offering each pupil the opportunity to perform individually and with others. The workshop will last approximately one hour. Applicants will be required to prepare a poem or monologue of no more than one minute in length for the audition.

In the case of COVID-19 restrictions, candidates will be asked to submit a recording with set requirements, details of which will be outlined in a letter following the application deadline.

Outcome

Applicants will be informed of the decision when they receive their entrance examination results in February.
The Director of Drama’s decision is final. Brief written feedback for all shortlisted candidates will be included in the letter informing you of the outcome.
