International acting auditions

For our international acting auditions we require you to perform two 2-minute monologues, one from the past and one from the present.  We also welcome auditions via YouTube, Vimeo or other internet platforms.

We interview MA/MFA Theatre Directing applicants and you may, if you wish, support your application with a portfolio and/or showreel of work. We also welcome interviews via Skype.

Please note that all applicants attending an overseas audition will need to complete our direct application form before they are allocated a time and date for their audition. When completing the form please select the overseas audition option and your country of choice in the Auditions box.

Overseas auditions only take place on the dates and times specified below. If you are unable to attend any of our overseas or UK (£55 audition fee payable) auditions in person, please complete our direct application form and submit an online audition for which there is a non-refundable audition fee of £55. For full details below.
