Two-week short course
If you’re thinking about applying to drama school, our intensive Introduction to Audition Technique short course is an excellent way to gain the skills and confidence you need to approach the audition process.
Over the two weeks of the course, students work on classical and modern speeches as well as set texts, learning vocal techniques and physical exercises to support their preparation for auditions. Students rehearse scenes to help develop screen acting technique and are encouraged by a team of experienced tutors to develop their skills and abilities in a supportive environment.
Our tutors offer advice on how to select appropriate monologues for audition and how to make a positive impression in the audition room.
The course culminates in a day of mock auditions, where students apply the techniques they have learned; performing speeches, sight-reading, singing and presenting scene work for camera.*
