We hold auditions throughout the year and offer places as we go. Our auditions are all day on a Saturday from 10am- 3pm (finish times variable) and the fee is £35. 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 £35 which you will need to pay online by filling in the form below.The audition fee is non-refundable.
