Audience Guidance - Acting

Candidates should prepare either:

or

  • Two contrasting modern / contemporary speeches (written after 1956)

There is no specific advantage in choosing one option over the other, it is up to the individual candidate.


Audience Guidance - Musical Theatre

Candidates should prepare:

1. Audition Song
You will need to prepare one song from the musical theatre repertoire.

their own material.

  • One modern/contemporary speech (written after 1956)

or

  • One speech from the Elizabethan / Jacobean period
