Diversity and accessibility are really important to us and so we audition all of our candidates, UK-based and international in a way that works for you and for FREE.

You may choose to come to one of our audition days at our fully accessible studios and theatres or, if you have specific mobility requirements, if the costs of travel are prohibitive for you, if you work full time or if you live abroad, you might like to take part in one of our ‘digital auditions’. Offering digital auditions allows us to reach out to talented applicants who are not in a position to travel.

Whether you come onsite to audition or whether you audition on line you will have the same welcoming and inclusive experience.

All applicants will be asked to perform two, short contrasting theatre monologues, perform a song and participate in a selective dance workshop.
