What we are looking for
The assessment of your audition will be based on your acting, vocal and movement abilities, as well as your potential to develop as a professional in your chosen discipline.

What we are looking for
The assessment of your audition will be based on your ability to show a grounding in technique, a flexibility in taking directions, as well as the desire to take risks as a performer.

Musical Theatre is a very exacting and demanding art form and requires performers with exceptional stamina, versatility and skill. As the program is predominantly practice-based, your ability to meet these demands will be considered when we choose prospective students.

It is essential that all applicants have an advanced level of both written and spoken English Language.

  • A portfolio containing at least 10 pieces of original work (actual or documented) that demonstrate your creative development and process. These projects will need to be explained by you during the interview process.
  • Your portfolio should include drawings, sketches, idea developments and demonstrate relevant 2D work (e.g. posters, editorial, photography, graphic design artwork, paintings, printmaking, digital imaging, web design, etc) and 3D work (e.g. 3D design, 3D paper structures, packaging design, etc).
  • Your portfolio should consist of design related works solely created by yourself in order to perform an appropriate assessment of your entry level.
