Why Audition Prep?
Auditions can be a scary time for even the most seasoned professionals which is why we decided to start our workshops, after all practise makes permanent. We provide many different audition workshops here at Northern Prep Squad, from Musical theatre to TV/FILM, Cruise style auditions (Singers and dancers) and of course Drama School prep auditions.
For those of you interested in taking your training further and auditioning for drama school, look out for our Drama School workshops with faculty from leading drama schools. Come and practise your monologues, songs and dance calls before you head for the real thing. We can help guide you in the right direction and provide a realistic experience, along with feedback before you venture to your chosen school.
How it all works
As an example of what to expect, this is what a typical Musical Theatre audition workshop at Northern Prep Squad looks like.
You will be asked to sign in at the front desk where you will be given a number. Just like many auditions.
You will learn a dance fairly quickly and be asked to show it in smaller groups to give you the opportunity to really perform, dancer or not.
You will be sent a scene the week before ready to learn. On the day you will work through them with the professional.
You will be asked to bring a cut song to perform. The panel may work with you during this time and give you help with song choices, technique and performance quality.
Tips & Tricks
Finally, we will give you our best tips and tricks for auditions, dispel any myths and answer any questions that you have.
Please remember this is not an audition, it is an opportunity to try out the process, ask questions and gain feedback which you don’t usually get.
There is no need to worry if you feel that you are less confident in any one of these disciplines. There will always be others in the same boat so why not feel the fear and do it anyway.
Remember, PRACTISE MAKES PERMANENT!
