With our regular audition days, we audition hundreds of possible ICTheatreonians, and it’s important to us that our successful auditonees know exactly what they’re going to get when they join the ICTheatre family.
An audition is not just a chance for us to get a sense of your potential to train at ICTheatre, crucially it is also an opportunity for you to become aware of what we have to offer you. Choosing where to train is a huge decision. You will need to commit time and money to the experience, you will need to put your faith in your tutors and engage with the ethos of the college. We think that you should have a clear idea of who we are and what is unique about us in terms of the training you will receive. Without that information, how are you supposed to make a decision that will affect your life so deeply?
At ICTheatre we train you with the skills necessary to develop your talent, sharpen your technique, and cultivate your entrepreneurial skills. When you graduate with a degree in the performing arts you should not have to follow the clichéd route of waiting tables or working in a call centre while you are ‘resting’. Our course is designed to offer you a rigorous training across the disciplines of acting, dancing and singing. This is at the heart of what we do.
Our course offers unique advantages that aren’t available at most drama schools, these include:
- Small classes of no more than 10-15 students
Our streamed classes mean that we can focus on each student as an individual, allowing you the space to grow and nurture your own specific talents and skills.
- A highly experienced faculty
Our faculty have years of experience and continue to work in the industry. They are supported by a range of practitioners and professionals who will deliver in specialised areas. We have strong industry connections, which we draw on throughout the training.
- 1:1 tutorials in all subjects
These 1:1 tutorials give you the chance to focus on your individual learning through specific feedback from your tutors in each subject area, guiding you through both challenges and triumphs.
- Choose from extra classes each week
You get to choose from a selection of options on top of your key classes. These workshops target specific areas, giving you an opportunity to explore elements that deepen and expand on the core training. These classes include Circus Skills, Puppetry, Acting for Television, Stand-up Comedy, Opera Jazz, Heels Commercial, Agency and Casting work and so much more.
- Mental resilience training
The Performing Arts industry is a notoriously difficult profession to enter, laced with rejections and difficulties. It is also a wonderful career to embark on and we want to equip you with strategies to cope when things don’t go smoothly, to give you the ability to make the most of opportunities, to keep steady in stressful situations. We offer our training professionals daily bespoke sessions revolving around mindfulness, strategic intervention and meditation.
We will develop the skills you need to take responsibility for your own work. You will learn how to market yourself, raise money, network, self-tape, fill in a tax return, build up a following on social media, approach venues, develop an idea. Not everyone in the performing arts world is a ‘triple threat’ and thats not what we encourage you to become here at ICTheatre. Throughout your 3 years of studying on our degree course, you’ll be motivated to find your own unique skill set and discover where you’re best places in the many roles across the performing arts platform, whilst also developing yourself as an entrepreneur.
- Receive a validated degree certification
Finally, your degree will be validated by the University of Sussex, meaning you’ll have a degree from one of the top 20 universities.
