How To Apply

Online Zoom Audition & Interview

Apply now for Online Zoom Audition & Interview Autumn 2021

The One Year Foundation in Acting and the Two Year Diploma in Acting starts in September 2021. At present we are holding auditions via Zoom - Zoom Audition Now.

Course Delivery during COVID and beyond

We are at present running all our courses in person and adhering to safe working practices. We have reduced class sizes with groups working in their own 'bubbles’. We are maintaining social distancing and masks must be worn in the building and in class.

If present government guidelines change or we feel there is a greater risk to our staff and students then we can move to either a blended delivery with some classes in person and some on Zoom or to all class taking place online / Zoom.

We very successfully moved all our classes online in the March Lockdown and know we can deliver the courses this way if we need to. We have restructured the curriculum to embrace those elements that work well online and are working on socially distanced performances – streamed or otherwise in line with government recommendations.

The industry and digital delivery

Self-tapes (auditions/castings recorded by the actor at home and then sent in) are starting to become the normal. Many casting directors, directors and agents were already conducting much of their work online and post Covid-19 it is likely that this will become the industry standard.

Geography will no longer be a barrier to opportunity and the acting community will be truly global. It is therefore vital that actors in training are at ease, and familiar with, working professionally online.

Apply Now

Please complete the Application Form and choose your audition/interview day. We will then send you a Zoom invite for an online audition & interview.

You will need to fill in the why do I want to train as an actor section on the form or send us a video statement (no longer than 1 minute) telling us why you want to train.

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.
