FDS- OSD and DSL Joint auditions
About the Regional Auditions Project
Drama Studio London and The Oxford School of Drama have joined forces to give you the opportunity to audition to both schools in one day with no fee!
Auditions will be held at:
Alphabetti Theatre, Newcastle – 25th March 2023
Doncaster Little Theatre – 26th March 2023
Mayflower Theatre and MAST Mayflower Studios, Southampton – 1st April 2023
This event has developed over a number of years in which Federation of Drama School members collaborate to extend opportunities across the UK for prospective actors to demonstrate their talent.
Removing the cost of auditioning and minimising travel costs breaks down some of the financial barriers to professional actor training. This is particularly relevant in areas of low arts participation such as Newcastle, Doncaster and Southampton.
The audition day will consist of a fun and engaging workshop. You are requested to prepare both a classical and a contemporary monologue (each lasting two minutes maximum). There will also be time to talk individually with panel members about the courses on offer.
Drama Studio London and The Oxford School of Drama are members of The Federation of Drama Schools. Both schools focus solely on actor training, offering specialist preparation for the creative industries.
Drama Studio London, based in Ealing, West London, offers three full-time professional acting degrees at Undergraduate and Postgraduate level. Find out more about DSL’s courses
The Oxford School of Drama, based in Oxfordshire, offers a Three Year and a One Year full-time professional acting course and a Six Month Foundation Course in Acting. Find out more about OSD’s courses
“As someone from a working-class northern background I have always struggled to attend auditions because of the cost of travel. But when I saw the joint audition I jumped at the opportunity. It was an amazing day and for the first time I felt like I was more than a number. Each school took time to get to know me through an interview. I recommend this to anyone- definitely the future of auditions!”
Emily Suzanne Lloyd, attendee at 2019 event who went on to graduate from Drama Studio London in 2022.
