Overview

At this acting audition workshop, participants will be guided through the process of preparing for Drama School auditions, through careful selection of monologues and developing characterisation. This workshop will be extremely useful for those preparing for The Lir Academy auditions and/or any other drama school that participants may be applying to.

Good audition preparation is vital in order to showcase your optimum best within a very short amount of time. Typically drama school auditions last between 10 - 15 minutes so it's very important to be fully prepared and to create a good first impression, this course will offer helpful tips in achieving this.

Please bring monologues with you to this workshop so that the tutor can advise on the most suitable selection for a drama school audition.

This course will be delivered online via Zoom.
