Acting for Film Audition Requirements: To audition for the acting for film conservatory or degree programs at the New York Film Academy, prospective students must submit an application. Applications can be completed online or brought to the audition. There is a $65 application fee required.

Please prepare two contrasting contemporary monologues of approximately 60-90 seconds per monologue.
  • Your monologues must be age appropriate and from a legitimate source material, published play or screenplay.
  • For video submissions please make sure to include your name, the title of the piece you are performing, and the program that you are applying to.
We suggest reading as many plays as possible. This will help you recognize the structure of a good monologue and character arc. We want you to find pieces that excite you, that showcase your unique talent, and that you connect with personally. The more connected you are to the character's circumstances, the more we get to see your talent and personality shine.

Please feel free to contact the admissions office if you have any questions about appropriate material.

Musical Theatre Audition Requirements: Please prepare two contrasting musical theatre songs with musical accompaniment, and one 60-90 second monologue from a published contemporary English language play or screenplay.
