We have every hope that we will be able to run these short courses in GSA's studios in a Covid-safe way, but if government guidance changes and makes this impossible, we will run courses online, which proved very successful in 2020-2021.

Why GSA?

GSA is widely recognised by the entertainment industry as a provider of the foremost performing arts training in the world and our pre-audition courses offer students hoping to gain entry in to drama school invaluable experience and advice.

Programme overview

We offer two pathways of this two-day intensive weekend course: Musical Theatre audition technique and Acting audition technique. The Musical Theatre pathway focuses on audition techniques and integrated skills within acting, singing and dance whilst the Acting pathway places emphasis on acting technique, voice and movement.

Please note this course is not solely for preparation for GSA auditions but for any drama school.

Is it for me?

If you are serious and determined to pursue a career in the performing arts industry and want an insight into drama school audition days - this is the course for you.

Our aim is to offer experience through mock auditions, intensive technical workshops and how to prepare for auditions. Guidance will be given on your audition material, how to present yourself and any areas you may need to develop further in order to give you the best possible chance of success.

You must be aged 17+ (A2) to do this course.

"This course has been a major wake up call for me. I am now very much excited to do the work required to find the right material, to spend my time working with it and to step outside of myself and stop ‘acting’"

Please note that due to the nature of the audition process there is no guarantee that a student attending these courses will achieve a recall or place at a drama school
