Diversity and accessibility are really important to us and so we audition all of our candidates, UK-based and international, in a way that works for you and for free.

- trainable vocal, physical and imaginative/emotional skills
- potential that you'll benefit from the study in acting offered at Plymouth
- an ability to understand, interpret and embody a dramatic text
- a sense of language and rhythm, and the potential for identification with the thought process of a dramatic text
- the ability to portray and inhabit an imagined or fictional situation
No props or scripts to be used at the audition.
Applicants will typically hold 104 points or above but we encourage all individuals to apply whatever their qualifications. We understand that not every applicant will come from a formal educational setting and we recognise relevant experience and passion and not just grades when we review applications.
