Sitting on the other side of the audition table is something we hope all performers get a chance to do at some stage in their careers, it is an incredibly eye-opening experience. For starters, you will quickly come to the realization that every single person on the audition panel is vying for you to be amazing – the second you walk through the audition door! Secondly, every person on the audition panel has an enormous amount of respect and empathy for the stressful task you are about to undertake. Auditions are no easy task, we understand this. We also understand nerves and anxiety. Auditions are however the only way that creative teams can ascertain if you are right for a show, a role and in this case a course. Knowing that we want you to be great and that we are behind you every step of the way, should encourage you to give this opportunity all that you have got.
Audition technique is something that we will thoroughly cover as part of our LAMTA course but, because we want to give you the best chance possible, we have put together a detailed Audition Information booklet containing all the audition requirements as well as our “Top 20 Audition Tips” for you to consider whilst preparing for your upcoming LAMTA audition. This will be sent to you on application.
As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, all LAMTA auditions for the 2021 intake will take place via online auditions.

WHAT TO WEAR
What you wear on your audition day says a lot about you, so choose carefully. Remember, an audition is like a job interview, so you would never arrive looking slovenly. You should arrive somewhat dressy, appropriate, tasteful and a little conservative. Here are some of our suggestions:
Females: pants or a skirt and blouse, or a simple dress. No denim, shorts, or extreme miniskirts. No flip-flops, trainers or crocs. Character or jazz shoes are acceptable. Makeup should be light and natural. Hair should be cleared away from your face.
Males: casual but nice, pants or chinos, a shirt and/or sweater. No shorts. No flip-flops, trainers or crocs. Hair should be styled away from your face.
As the singing, acting and interview components of your audition will happen together, choose one outfit that works for all three sections. You will then change into your dance gear for the dance component.
Make sure you are well-groomed. Your hair should be neat, you should look fresh and smell good.
Please remove any jewellery, and extreme piercings (tongue, nose etc)
You are auditioning for training, not for a particular play/musical, so do not come dressed up in character.
Wear clothing that makes you feel comfortable, in which you can move freely and without restriction.
Practise all your audition material in the shoes you plan to wear. Ladies be careful of extremely high heels.
If you look good, you′ll feel good!
