ACTING FOR FILM AUDITION GUIDELINES
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 GUIDELINES
To audition for the Professional Conservatory of Musical Theatre at NYFA, prospective students must submit an application. Applications can be completed online or brought to the audition. There is a required $65 application fee for the 1 & 2-Year Musical Theatre Conservatory Programs and a $50 application fee for the 4-Week Musical Theatre Workshop.

Please prepare two contrasting musical theatre songs and one monologue from a contemporary American play (each piece should be approximately 60-90 seconds in length).
  • When auditioning at the New York City location, a pianist will be provided. Please bring sheet music in a three-ring binder and in the correct key.
  • For all other auditions outside of the NYC campus, please bring an accompaniment backing track with you on a USB or mobile device (instrumental only, no vocals included).
  • We will not accept a cappella auditions (singing without music).
  • For video submissions, please make sure to include your name, the titles of the pieces and shows you are performing from, and the program that you are applying to.
Please do not choreograph your audition, use props, or perform into a microphone. We ask that you choose material that is age- and type-appropriate. It is important to remember that you must act your songs, so find pieces that excite you and that you have a personal connection to. The more connected you are to the character's circumstances, the more we are able to see your talent and personality.
