Coronavirus Update

Our courses are up and running in Camden and we are happy to once again be training professional actors here at The Bridge Theatre Training Company. Our next academic year starts in September 2022.

Since the pandemic we have introduced online video auditionsThe first step is to submit an application form using the link above. For a video audition you will need to record yourself performing two monologues i.e. the ones you would have performed in person. They should be of contrasting emotional styles to demonstrate your acting range. They should be from published plays or can be a monologue from TV/Film and should be between 2-3 minutes long. You should also record a statement as to why you want to do this course and outline your acting experience. In addition tell us something about yourself.

We advise sending via WeTransfer or sending us a link to Vimeo or Youtube. You will receive more information after applying. Let us know if you have any questions. The first step is to submit an application form!

Our live Audition Workshops are held under COVID-19 secure precautions.

The audition day was unlike any other. You felt like an individual and the energy and passions that went into it was fantastic. This carried on throughout the whole length of the course.” Elisabeth Angharad, Graduate

There are no formal entry requirements. Entry is by audition, and candidates must not only have acting ability but also the level of commitment necessary to become a professional actor.
