We are now holding auditions in person but have waivered the audition fee as we transition out of lockdown.


For the audition you will need to prepare the following:

Foundation Course Application: One monologue from a published play or film that is 2 to 3 minutes long.

Diploma Course Application: Two contrasting monologues from published plays or films each 2 to 3 minutes long.

The pieces can be classical or contemporary. Please see our Audition Guide for more advice.

Entry Requirements

Applicants must be over 18 years old for Diploma. We will accept students 16-18 on Foundation with written parental approval. Previous drama experience is of course useful but not necessary and there is no upper age limit.

Applications from speakers of English as a second language are welcome but please note that all of ACT's courses are taught in English and are practical and active. We recommend an International English Language Testing System (IELTS) overall band of 6.0 or if below this extensive previous drama or theatre experience.
