All about the course

The key to a good audition in any context is that you feel confident in the room (Or, these days – on Zoom!) This five-day course focuses on useful tips and techniques to approach auditions – and, to enjoy them. It offers a great insight into the fun and rigour of drama training. Taught by the same tutors and industry professionals as our full-time acting courses, the course provides industry insight on audition preparation, selecting appropriate speeches that really show who you are, an introduction to self-taping and an example of a Zoom audition. During the week you’ll experience a range of mock auditions that you’ll receive feedback on. It culminates in a panel audition with LAMDA creatives where you’ll put your new skills and techniques into practice, perform classical and contemporary speeches and present scene-work for camera.

This course is not validated by a higher education institution (HEI). It is one of LAMDA’s own range of non-accredited courses. Once you've completed the course, you will receive a LAMDA short course certificate.

What will I be doing?

Each day will be different, as you’ll be introduced to a new skill every day! The following areas will be covered during the week:

  • Vocal technique
  • Physical work and warm-ups
  • Classical and contemporary theatre auditions
  • Acting for the screen
  • Zoom auditions and self-taping*

*Please note that material recorded on this course cannot be made available for use outside of LAMDA.
