The Swan Theatre, The Moors, Worcester, WR1 3ED
We will need to see you perform in order to accept you onto the course. Most auditions require 2 speeches that contrast in period and feel, as well as a song. If you have some of these already, then great, but if not, don't worry, just email us and we can discuss some less daunting options.
When auditioning for the theatre school we are not looking for the perfect performance. We are looking for your potential as a performer. We want you to do well and do the best you can.
IDEALLY WHAT SHOULD I PREPARE FOR THE AUDITION?
1 x Modern Speech (Post 1980)
1 x Classical Speech (Pre 1900)
1 x Unaccompanied Song
SOME TOP TIPS FOR AUDITION PIECES
1. Pick pieces you enjoy.
Don't pick something you think will be impressive! Do something you're comfortable with that shows off your best performance skills.
2. Learn the pieces well.
This may sound like an obvious one!
3. Pick something you understand.
As with all acting, if you don't understand what you are saying your audience certainly won't.
4. Singing - Keep it simple.
Singing can be something that scares many people. Keep it simple, we just need to hear your voice. Happy Birthday will be fine if you don't have anything else!
