Audition Technique

Two-week summer short course

All information on these pages is for applicants and students starting in Summer 2019.

If you’re interested in applying for drama schools or if you want to know more about preparing for acting auditions, this intensive two-week course is designed to introduce you to the fun and rigour of drama training. While concentrating on the techniques needed to approach the audition process, the course also provides an insight to professional acting training.  

What classes will I attend and what will I learn?

  • Vocal technique
  • Physical/movement training
  • Acting for the screen
  • Group and one-to-one sessions working on modern and classical speeches*

Taught by the same tutors and industry professionals that teach our full-time acting courses, you will gain insight on how to prepare for an acting audition, including selecting appropriate monologues for auditions, and making a positive impression in the audition room.

The course culminates in a day of mock auditions, where you will apply the techniques you have learnt; performing speeches, sight-reading, singing and presenting 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 certificates. Students who complete this course will receive a LAMDA Short Course Certificate.
