Overview

An essential guide for the thousands of young people who apply to the UK's drama schools every year - and those who want to help them through the process.

With competition for places at drama school becoming extremely tough and standards increasingly high, this clear and honest guide is packed with sound advice and essential information for young people who want to train as actors and performers. Written by a teacher and audition panellist with a lifetime's experience of the audition process, it will help all aspiring actors develop the self-confidence, motivation and skills required to get into the drama school of their choice.

The topics are covered in a straightforward, step-by-step way - directly addressing both potential acting and musical-theatre students - and include:

Deciding if it's really the right option for you

Researching and selecting the appropriate drama school

Making yourself the best prepared, most ideal candidate

Choosing and preparing your speeches and songs

Developing your working process and your self-awareness

Coping with the audition day itself

Considering your next steps if you do (or don't) get in

Along with many lists of speeches and songs to look at (as well as those you should avoid), there are also several appendices with information about the major UK drama schools, how to obtain funding, suggested further reading, and an introduction to the theatrical terms and genres that every prospective student should know.
