    I would throughly recommend Stoppard's Arcadia. Valentine (a young mathematician) has an amazing monologue in it.
    I played Lady Croom in Arcadia in December 2008, its a brilliant play!

    I think my personal favourite quote though is 'everytime i turned around she was up a Library ladder, in the end i gave in. Which reminds me, i saw something between her legs which reminded me of you...'
    On the second night our Bernard was slapped so hard he dislocated his jaw :P

    Might be different for CPP but I heard my Yes in about 2/3 weeks compared to my friends 9 days for a No.

    Hi all!
    Have started a 2011 thread: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...0#post25160620

    Ants in pants? Me??

    Anyway, quick question - which drama schools go through UCAS? Would applying to those normally mean you can't apply to "back-up" degrees in English?

    Central, Rose Bruford, Royal Welsh and i think there might be a few others... but maybe someone else can help me on that one.. I would say it wouldn't mean you can't apply for back-up degrees, some of the UCAS schools ask for another application anyway and PS isn't necessarily super important on some of the drama school applications, so you can focus on English. And also English isn't too far removed from Drama, many things you say about one can relate to the other also.

    But Anyway! Good Luck you Eager Beaver!

    Cool - thanks!
    Am still undecided about an English degree anyway.
    At the moment my favourite non-drama school option is Drama & Creative Writing at UEA...the degree Matt Smith did :yep:

    Hello! Can't tell you how nervous it make me posting here!

    I'm after some advice, or even just some stories of your own adutition experiences really. I have two auditions (Mountview and Oxford) coming up in June (I had to apply late due to illness and exams) and these will be my first auditions in many years. The last auditions I went through were during my GCSEs :/

    I've read through all the specs and planned out four monologues, though I still need to choose a couple more just so I have plenty to choose from, I think. I'm really, really nervous. It has been so long since I performed properly in front of anyone. I know I can do it, but self doubt creeps in quite easily when you've had quite a bit of a break.

    Do any of you lovely people have any personal stories or advice you'd like to share? What were your impressions of the places, the people etc? What should I/shouldn't I expect? What kind of speeches did you choose? How long did you stay? Etc.

    I have never been to either place, due to my health I was unable to go to open days. I'll be applying for an MA, so I realise it's ridiculously competative and want to prepare as much as I can

    Hi beef_tea,

    You're certainly not alone! I'm terrified and I'm really afraid that this is going to affect my chances because of just how nervous I am. I am just finishing up a degree in literature so it's been quite some time since I've been through any audition processes.

    Fingers crossed that you do it.
