The Actors Centre

Audition Bootcamp

An intense five-day course for those who are considering a career in acting and want to prepare and hone their audition technique.

February 2017, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 10:00 - 17:30

Cost: £400

The week will offer a range of workshops giving an invaluable grounding in vital skills required for auditions and ongoing training.

Working with experienced tutors, directors and performers you will develop a practical understanding of text and character, basic vocal and movement skills, the art of improvisation and at the end of the week you will walk away, armed for auditions with two polished monologues**, one classical and one contemporary and plenty of tips and techniques to keep you relaxed in audition situations.

The course will end with a mock audition and the opportunity to showcase your polished pieces and presentation skills in front of a panel.

Course Topics

Audition Technique
Working with two monologues of your choice**, one classical and one modern, we will explore ways of approaching plays and developing character, motive and compelling performance. We will look at general audition technique including presentation, delivery, attitude and focus.

** HOW ARE THE MONOLOGUES SELECTED AND PREPARED?

Participants must select two monologues in preparation for the course.  One of these should be by Shakespeare and the other by a contemporary writer.  Your selected monologues must be submitted to TAC for approval by the tutor taking the course.  This should be done no later than one week before commencement of the course.

Once approved you must have the speeches memorised to be ready to start the course. All preparation and class details are sent to participants in an explanatory email at least two weeks before the course start date – if participants have not received this email by this time they must contact the membership department.

Improvisation
Grow in confidence, learn to trust others and gain skills that can be applied to rehearsal, audition and performance.

Voice
Discover how to develop a vocal technique that is free to serve the demands of your text and exercises that will further develop your voice and its emotional range.

Movement
Explore the body through movement, develop some useful techniques and exercises and gain an insight on how to tackle movement as part of the audition and rehearsal process.
