Auditions & Open Days

Training for the talented, not the elite: in-line with the ICTheatre ethos, our audition process is completely FREE.

ICTheatre Training Professionals have a sense of why they want to be a performer; they have commitment, flexibility, passion, dedication, curiosity, discipline, courage, and imagination.

They are determined, creative performers with the drive to achieve, they are individuals with vision, entrepreneurial spirit, with the skills to make their own work as well as to be a performer for hire.

We believe that performing arts training should be available to everyone…

…not only is the process free of charge, as a part of the audition you’ll experience a ICTheatre workshop, where you’ll get to work with industry professionals from our visiting faculty.

We believe it’s as important for you to audition us as it is for us to audition you, so with that in mind our Open Days are a brilliant way to see if ICTheatre is the right institution for you.

You will have a tour of the facilities and be given an in depth talk on the course, including how our unique pathways and options will work for you. This is also your chance to ask any questions you may have, so ICTheatre staff are on hand to help with any queries you may have from Student Finance to accommodation and life in student life in Brighton.
