BA (Hons) Acting Audition HelpWatch
More about Manchester Metropolitan University
Hi so I'm auditioning next week for the BA Acting course and I have no idea what to expect. I mean I've read the booklet thing and know about the 3 pieces but I'm just nervous I guess as to what to expect! I'm coming from outside Manchester so I don't know the city or anything. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks
Hi, I'm also auditioning for the BA Acting course at MMU, I don't have any idea what to expect either! Even my audition date is a bit ambiguous at the moment because they sent me two (I could have missed it or it could be tomorrow, I don't even know). I'm also coming from outside the city so I don't know much particularly about it only that it is pretty big! Loads of shops and stuff. I don't really know what to expect either, only that it will be just you in a room with a few teachers, you'll do two, maybe all three of your speeches and then you go to do a workshop with a load of other candidates. Hopefully it will all be explained when I get there!
What even happens in the workshop? I'm all set to go with the 3 pieces, but I have no idea what goes on in the workshop...
Good luck to you both!
I auditioned last week (7th Jan) and it was pretty good! The workshop is just a big group warm up that you and all the other candidates do, it warms up your bodies and for my group we were told to imagine how our character would walk and act and talk so it was just getting us into the mindset of things ready for the monologues. After that they split us into four groups and we went off into separate rooms to perform our Shakespearian and modern day monologues (they didn't ask to see the third monologue) in front of a smaller group of people. Then once that finished we had a talk from the director of the school about what happens in each of the years and there was a Q&A. It all lasted about an hour and a half and they said they'd get back to us with the recall or rejection notice within 7-10 days. I hope this helps you get more of an idea about what goes on! Good luck!
By a smaller group of people, was it people from the group you were separated into or just a few teachers that you had to perform the monologues in front of? Thank you so much for the information, takes a huge weight off everything! And good luck to you as well, I hope you get a recall
Good luck and I hope you hear back soon!

I know this thread hasn't been active for a while, but I have a few questions for those of you who managed to get in to MMU: What did you pick for your monologues? How did you decide what to pick? Did you contrast your monologues, and if so, how?
Thank you in advance!
I wish you the best of luck with it all!
