ALRA Open Days

Deciding which drama school will suit you best can be a difficult process. Visiting the schools during an Open Day is the best way of finding out how a school operates, getting its 'feel' and understanding its identity.

We would advise you to visit as many drama schools as possible so you have a sense of what's out there. Prospectuses and websites are very informative, but there's a lot to be said for gut instinct - come and judge for yourself.

Note down questions and concerns before you come and ask as many different people as you can - students, teachers and administration staff. Bring a friend or family member if you like - it's useful to have someone to bounce ideas and opinions off afterwards.

You’ll have the opportunity to take part in a workshop with a member of the ALRA teaching staff and there is a Question and Answer session at the end of the morning. You’ll have a chance to meet students and find out how ALRA's helped them to learn and develop skills in preparation for joining the profession.

Feedback

  • I attended the Open Day at ALRA 27th October! Just emailing to say thank you for the day, I learnt a lot about the school and students, I found it very useful talking to the students and was able to ask the questions I needed to.
    The matinee performance was fantastic, I thoroughly enjoyed it and thought the standard of the performance was brilliant. I felt very welcome to the school and was impressed by what I saw. Again, thank you for the experience and I look forward to applying to ALRA and auditioning for 2011.
