The Audition Process

And frequently asked questions... 

Why does YPS audition? 

At YPS of Acting we care about the culture and atmosphere of each acting class. We want everyone that attends to really want to be there. (Not because their friend is going or because their mum wants them to.) We want passion and commitment! 

I haven't done any auditions before, does that matter?

No problem at all! Most of our students don't have much audition experience or even any serious acting experience. But they know that they love acting and want to learn more about it and work hard. 

Do I have to memorise the speech? 

The short answer is no. But we want to see that you've thought a lot about the monologue and rehearsed it as much as possible for you and the time frame you have, and usually if you've practised enough, you will remember it naturally. 

1

Parent & YPS chat

After we receive your application, we usually give the parent/guardian a call to chat about the applicant and any experience they have. (It's fine if you don't have any previous acting experience!)

Following the phone call, we will send you a choice of monologues to choose from with the full audition details and an individual time slot. 

2

Get rehearsing

We will send you a selection of monologues to choose from. Your job is to rehearse this monologue to the best of your ability. We do not expect you to learn it, however, we do think its important that you have thought about the character, what they are thinking about, who they are talking to, where are they and how are they feeling. 

Top Tip: We recommend that you rehearse your speech in full at least 15 times. 

If you applied last minute, we take this into consideration. 

3

Audition Day

Whether you are auditioning in person or online, it is the same.

You will perform your speech to Lily (Director) and usually one or two other acting coaches. They will then give you some small direction or ask you to perform it in a different way

(so this is worth practicing before the audition day). 

Following this, they will ask you some questions. Why you want to join, what you like about acting, which actors you like and why.
