Yes! Once a year we offer the chance to audition for our prestigious Stage Scholarship awards. The next opportunity is at our auditions on 26th April 2020. You do not need to do anything different to sign up for this; just book your audition here. All applicants in attendance are considered for the scholarship.
CAN I ATTEND ON THE 26th APRIL and not try out for scholarships?
Yes! This audition is also for general admission as well.
WHaT to expect...
The audition is made up of three sections: singing, a dance call and a short interview with the panel.
We work hard to make sure our auditions are fun, rewarding, supportive and educational - regardless of the outcome. Teamwork is strongly encouraged and all applicants should walk away having learnt something from the experience.
We do not expect everyone to be a pro already! We're looking for passion and potential.
WHaT to PREPARE...
All Musical Theatre/Singing Team applicants will need to prepare a song of their choice, to sing a cappella. You will only need to sing a verse and a chorus (or the equivalent, time-wise). You are welcome to start halfway through the song or just sing the end, if that's the section that best showcases what you can do.
WHaT to bring...
Please bring lots of water (you will be working hard!) and a snack/packed lunch. Please have a song prepared for the audition and wear suitable shoes/clothing for dance. Any long hair should be tied back off the face.
ARE PARENTS REQUIRED TO STAY...
Applicants will be chaperoned by Spirit staff for the full duration of the audition. Parents/Guardians can make use of the waiting room area at the venue, or drop off and collect at the end of the session.
WHEN WILL I RECEIVE A RESPONSE...
All applicants will receive a response within two weeks of their audition.
Successful applicants will either be offered an immediate placement, or a spot on our waiting list (subject to availability of spaces in appropriate class). For successful applicants, the first week at SYPC will be a trial week before making the full commitment to the team.
WHAT ARE THE AUDITION FEES...
The audition fee is £15 for a 3 hour Musical Theatre audition, or £5 for anyone only auditioning for Singing Teams/Choir. These fees cover taking classes with our industry professional faculty and being reviewed by our expert panel.
