We offer free auditions for a large number of applicants in order to ensure as many people as possible are able to audition for our BA (Hons) Acting programme.
There are 4 main ways in which we offer free auditions to applicants to ensure maximum access to our training; in 2018/19, we awarded over 1,200 free audition vouchers which enabled more applicants to attend auditions and access specialist drama training.
If any of the following apply, you will be eligible for a free audition:
Applicants who are part of the Open Door initiative automatically receive a free audition at Central, as well as 6 other leading UK drama schools. Open Door provides participants with an excellent support package to prepare and support them in applying and auditioning for drama school training. More information is available at www.opendoor.org.uk
In order to be considered for the BA (Hons) Acting programme at Central you will need to submit an application (through UCAS) following the general guidance for undergraduate applicants. We are only able to offer free auditions to candidates who apply before the 15 January UCAS application deadline. If you are eligible for a free audition, the process will be explained in the email inviting you to audition.
Applicants who have been awarded a free audition through Central’s outreach work in previous years will still be eligible for a further free audition, and our outreach work will continue alongside this scheme.
Interviews for BA (Hons) Contemporary Performance Practice and BA (Hons) Theatre Practice are free of charge.
Please note – we cannot offer refunds through Eventbrite. If you think you qualify for a free audition, please email firstname.lastname@example.org before you book your audition.
