Do I need previous experience to apply?
Applicants do not need to have trained professionally or have any experience to apply for Identity School of Acting. All applicants are judged solely on their performance during the audition process.
What will happen during the audition?
The audition is a group intensive workshop divided into two major sections: improvisation and text. You are graded on both areas. We assess your ability to improvise within the instructions that have been given to you, your connection to the text and your interaction with the other actor(s) on stage. These marks and general thoughts on your approach within the workshop will determine which group you are placed into, if you are successful.
Please note: you are not required to prepare audition material in advance.
What do I need to bring or wear?
You do not need to bring anything to the audition.
Please wear comfortable clothing and soft-soled shoes and avoid wearing jeans, hard-soled shoes or tight clothing, as you will be moving a lot during the workshop.
We ask all actors to remove jewellery and accessories before entering the auditions, so please ensure you leave any valuables at home. If you have long hair, you must tie it back, away from your face.
When will I receive the results?
Audition results are usually emailed within a week or two of the audition. Your email will state whether or not you have been successful. You will receive information regarding course dates and fees as well as your enrolment pack, which contains your contract in a follow up email closer to your start date.
How much does it cost?
AUDITION FEE: £40.00
Your audition fee contributes to the administration costs involved in organising workshops and processing applications and is therefore non-refundable. This is a standard practice across all drama schools.
