Joint Audition with Italia Conti and DSL in Newcastle

Three of the UK’s top Drama Schools have joined forces to reach the potential acting talent in Newcastle and Doncaster – offering an audition for 3 colleges in one day for just £30.00!

To audition, you’ll need to prepare two monologues – one contemporary and one classical and, if you’re auditioning for the Italia Conti Musical Theatre course, you’ll also need to be ready to sing. You can find lots of tips and hints on the websites of each of the schools and on the FDS website too. ALRA’s audition advice can be found here.

Apply by Tuesday 26th March 2019



The auditions are at Newcastle College on Saturday 30th March and Doncaster Little Theatre on Sunday 31st March. You’ll need to complete an application form (see the link above – NOT VIA THE ALRA APPLICATION SYSTEM) and pay your £30 (via the ticket icons above) by 26th March at the latest. Send your application form to FDSOutreach@gmail.com today. All enquiries should also go to this email.

  • ‘We know that it's expensive to audition for drama school. There's quite a bit of funding available once you secure a place but just getting to the audition can be too much of a financial strain for some. The lowest fee just for an audition is around £35.00 and then there’s the additional travel costs and you’ll possibly need overnight accommodation too.

    This means that the very first step towards professional actor training – the audition – can be the biggest barrier of all, and many talented performers never get the chance to fulfil their potential. This event in Newcastle is an attempt to break down that barrier.’

  • ‘Italia Conti is delighted to be joining forces with ALRA and Drama Studio London to offer this amazing opportunity to audition for three FDS schools on a single day for just £30. We are determined to make it as easy as possible for young people to have the opportunity to train at a leading performing arts conservatoire and follow in the steps of our famous alumni.

    We will be offering auditions for our Acting and MT courses on the day in Newcastle and, if an auditionee wishes to be considered for both, they can do that too as part of the £30 joint audition. We hope that this will be the first of many such days and look forward to discovering some exciting new talent.
