Our Auditions

We want everyone who applies to audition with us to come away with a clear picture of what training to be a professional actor with Fourth Monkey is truly like. Our auditions are designed to be dynamic, supportive and personable, to provide everyone with the chance to experience our unique and vibrant drama school and its training philosophy; to ensure that Fourth Monkey will offer the most suitable approach to training for them.

Taking place over the course of a full day, everyone is given the opportunity to be seen by us and demonstrate their skill and passion at audition through workshops,  performance and allow us to explore their drive to train professionally during a friendly interview.

I felt so welcome and free to be myself and to explore, it was by far the best audition experience.
