Auditions Advice & Guidance
Performers College takes great pride in the value our applicants gain from their auditions. It is an opportunity for us to get to know you and learn about your aspirations. Entry to the college is by audition only. Auditions are held regularly throughout the year.
A step-by-step guide to your Performers audition
- After we receive your application either via UCAS or direct application our admissions team will send you confirmation of your audition date. In this email, you will find guidelines on how to prepare for your audition and what the audition day entails.
- If you are unable to come to the Performers College campus we can offer you an online audition. If you would like to do this please request further details from the admissions team.
- On your audition day, you will be required to participate in a ballet class and jazz class and will need to present a monologue and song. You will have the opportunity to express your individuality via improvisation within the jazz and acting sessions.
Audition Anxiety Advice
Even the most experienced performers get audition nerves – it is totally normal. But you don’t have to let audition anxiety stop you from bringing your ‘A’ game.
We have auditioned thousands of students, which means we have seen it all. So here are our top tips for audition success. You’ve got this.
- Check you’ve had an email confirming your audition booking, along with our audition guidelines. If you haven’t please get in touch
- Read the audition guidelines thoroughly. We have created them for a reason, to ensure you are as well prepared and as informed as possible
- Be prepared. This is your time to shine, so make sure you are fully prepped to enable you to perform with confidence
- Relax. Although you might be feeling the pressure, remember that we want you to succeed as much as you do
- Treat your audition like a performance. You may have an audition panel instead of an audience, but give it the same energy and passion that you would if you had a paying audience in front of you
- Ensure that you have the correct clothing and shoes for each part of your audition, this will help you perform to the best of your ability
- Forget to read the audition guidelines
- Cancel your audition at the last minute
- Leave your preparation until just before your audition date, or decide you are going to ‘wing it’
- Choose a song or monologue that is not age-appropriate. You are more likely to be comfortable and successful doing something that is believable and in your casting range
- Do your acting and singing audition in full dance wear, your normal clothes are far more appropriate
