CENTRAL GAP YEAR DIPLOMA ACTING

Hi, Just wondering if anyone here has a child/knows of someone who's done this course please? DD has just been offered a place but I'd like to know: What sorts of numbers of students go on to further training at a recognised school; who the teachers are (current Central staff or ex students) and if ...

RADA third round audition: Any tips please?

Hi folks, First time posting in a while (have been busy ferrying DD to drama school auditions!). DD had date through today for 3rd audition at RADA. Have found a couple of audition blogs online about what to expect (3 hour workshop) but just thought I'd ask if anyone here has anything to add? Any ti...

Re: Straight acting summer schools 2017

Hi thanks for the reply - just checked and spotted DD had written Lamda course on her list too. Out of interest can I ask why you chose the Lamda audition course rather than the similar-sounding Actor's Audition Pieces one at Central? Thanks!

Straight acting summer schools 2017

Hi, DD is a member of the National Youth Theatre. If nothing comes of her casting audition (we are waiting till the end of May), we're looking to enrol her on a Summer course. She's most interested in straight acting (though can also dance, sing and play the cello). Does anyone have experience of th...

Changing the colour of character shoe elastic - tricks?

Hi, my DD is in a show which requires the pink elastic on her character shoes to be black. The elastic on the shoes at the moment has a popper fastening, so I'd rather not just cut it off and replace it later. I thought I'd try to cover it in black ribbon but this has failed as the ribbon won't stre...

Re: YMT and NYT audition results timing

Thanks for the replies so far. The NYT course would be 4 to 15 Aug and the YMT is also 3 August to 16 August so they do overlap (although this isn't really an issue because we probably couldn't stretch to paying for both)...it's more about whether to accept the YMT place and then drop out later (and...

YMT and NYT audition results timing

Hi all - I'm a new user but have seen some really good advice previously on the site so thought I'd ask if anyone's been in this situation. DD audtioned for YMT, NYMT and NYT this year. Didn't get in to NYMT but has just been offered a place at YMT. To confirm her place we need to pay £250 by 27 Mar...
