ArtsEd Takes Auditions to Manchester!


ArtsEd will be taking BA Acting auditions to Manchester this February to ensure that more people outside of London can experience an audition.

Aimed at those who cannot attend in London, the audition day will provide students with insight into ArtsEd’s BA Acting course and the opportunity to listen to key tutors and alumni about daily life. The audition session will also see a warm-up workshop led by an ArtsEd Acting Tutor where candidates will be required to perform two monologues.

Successful applicants will be invited to a recall audition in London, where they can also learn more about ArtsEd’s distinctive training, including insight into how the course is uniquely split between acting techniques for stage and screen. At the recall, prospective students can also tour ArtsEd’s excellent facilities and experience the uniquely vibrant atmosphere of its Chiswick home.

The Manchester-based audition event will take place on Saturday 23 February 2019 at the Shena Campus, Manchester College – students can sign up to attend now.

ArtsEd’s Director of the School of Acting, Gareth Farr sees these auditions as an essential step in increasing participation across the sector and as part of ArtsEd’s commitment in offering outstanding training to everyone.

Gareth says:

“Students with exceptional potential can’t always make it to a London audition, so we want to bring the audition to you. If you want to be part of the ArtsEd family and train with us then we want to see YOU at our Manchester audition.”

ArtsEd Graduate, proud Mancunian, and star of Calendar Girls, The Musical UK Tour, Tyler Dobbs says:

“I didn’t have a lot of money for my auditions so I auditioned for four schools – one being ArtsEd. The audition was brilliant because I met some students and staff and really got the ArtsEd vibe!

“After I was offered a place I did everything I could to get myself to London. I had fantastic support and advice from ArtsEd with regards to funding and wouldn’t have been able to do it without them. My advice is ‘go for it’ – don’t hesitate and get yourself to the audition! Sign up today!”
