School outreach, drama & performing arts courses

ALRA Outreach Audition Dates for February

  • Welcome to the ALRA outreach programme.


    I started using outreach as a way of reaching different groups and localities nearly 20 years ago and I still believe it is the best way to make contact with people and groups that are disconnected. That's why we will come to you and build a relationship that can only enhance the confidence and knowledge your students will be developing.


    Drama Schools can be imposing and distant places and I hope that by making this kind of link we can break down those fears and apprehensions.

    I look forward to either seeing your students myself, or one of my senior staff visiting you in the near future.


    Best wishes and good luck!

If you have promising, talented drama students that want to have a taste of what really happens at ALRA and what it takes to get through the audition process then please email back with five available dates for us to visit you and we will book a workshop. The workshop will consist of vocal warm-ups, movement, games, work with text and a talk from our Principal or Student Adviser, giving you a first-hand insight into life at ALRA South and ALRA North.

Outreach acting workshops at your school or college (travel costs only)

Our free Outreach programme sees us attend more and more schools up and down the country every year. Are you a drama or performing arts teacher? Do you have promising, talented drama students that want to have a taste of what really happens at ALRA and what it takes to get through the audition process? Then get in touch and book a two hour workshop, which will consist of vocal warm-ups, movement, games, work with text and a talk from a senior member of staff giving you a first-hand insight into life at ALRA South and ALRA North.

Outreach auditions can also be booked alongside the workshop at your school or college but there must be a minimum of 5 students and the audition fee of £45 per student, or the school can pay on behalf of all students.

Students will be told the outcome of their audition, and whether they have been successful no longer than 2 weeks after interview.

Stage Management and Technical Theatre Outreach interviews

It is also possible for any students you may have that are interested in the SMTT course to be interviewed at your school or college. For the interview, you will have an informal chat and you will be asked you about your desire to study Stage Management and Technical Theatre, your relevant skills, any previous experience you may have that is in any way related and, what you would like out of this course. This is also an opportunity for you to ask questions about the course.

They will be told the outcome of the interview, and whether they have been successful no longer than 10 days after interview.

Inset Course: Drama School Auditions

Teachers and lecturers preparing their students for Drama School auditions are now able to join us on the audition panel for a day to improve the chances for their students at audition. Observe the audition process with the panel, and sit in on detailed discussions about what you've seen. The day ends with an opportunity to discuss the process with senior staff at ALRA.

Maximum places: two per audition day.

What people say about our Outreach Auditions:

  • ...We thought the content of the workshop and audition process was good fun and really useful for us all.
    You put the students at ease and they commented afterwards about how much more prepared they would be in the future now, how it wasn’t as scary as they had expected it to be and how they now have some more tips on controlling their nerves!
