Audition / Book Open Day

Email us at | Difficulties completing the form? Please call 01462 677 808.

We hold auditions throughout the year and offer places as we go. Our auditions are held on Monday evenings 5:00pm - 10pm. You are only required to prepare two things: one musical theatre song with sheet music and one monologue of your choice. You will then take part in an open jazz class. Remember we are looking for trainability. You do not have to be perfect. The audition fee is £30 which you will need to pay online by filling in the form below.

We believe the best way to get a feel for our Academy is to take part in our free West End Masterclass Open Days or watch one of our full scale production in our theatre book here  Meet the teachers, look around the building and take classes in all disciplines. We only offer a limited number of open days. Please note: You ALSO get to look around, meet teachers and ask questions on our audition days.
