Audition for ALRA in New York!

Audition for ALRA in New York!

We’re holding satellite auditions at the URTAs (University/Resident Theatre Association) at Hilton Midtown in New York City in January 2020. URTA’s flagship programme has been running for over 50 years and offers opportunities for graduates to meet a plethora of theatre schools and programmes.

URTA candidates can audition and interview for ALRA’s courses in MA Professional Acting, MA Directing, MA Teaching (Creative Performance Practice) and MFA Linklater Teaching Practice (Voice and Theatre Arts) between 17th-20th January at the URTAs. For those who are not URTA candidates, we will be holding auditions and interviews for our BA (Hons) Acting course, plus all of the above courses, on 21st January at the same venue.

The deadlines for URTA candidates to apply are 2nd December for directing and teaching courses, and 6th January for acting courses. For everyone else, the deadline is 20th January for all courses.

In 2019 alone, ALRA was awarded Outstanding status by OFSTED, achieved a TEF Silver award and was rated the top conservatoire in the UK for student satisfaction in the National Student Survey.
