AUDITION REQUIREMENTS

Acting for Film
Musical Theatre


ACTING FOR FILM AUDITION GUIDELINES
In order to apply for the Acting for Film Conservatory or Acting for Film degree programs at the New York Film Academy, all applicants must submit a program application to audition. Applications can be submitted online or you can bring the application to the auditions. There is a $65 application fee required.

Please prepare two contemporary, contrasting monologues of approximately 60-90 seconds per monologue.

Please do not perform monologues from classical texts i.e. Shakespeare, Chekhov, Ibsen, or original works.

Your monologues must be age appropriate and from a legitimate source material i.e. published from film, television, or theatre. We suggest reading as many plays as you can get your hands on. This will help you begin to recognize the structure of a good scene within a play. Playwrights such as Shepard, Shanley, Margulies, LaBute, Rebeck, Mamet, Rapp etc. are a great place to start. Please feel free to contact the admissions office if you have any questions about appropriate material.

We want you to find pieces that excite you. But most importantly, we want you to find monologues and characters that you have a personal connection to. The more connected you are to the character’s circumstances, the more we get to see your talent and personality.

MUSICAL THEATRE AUDITION GUIDELINES
In order to apply for all Musical Theatre programs at the New York Film Academy, all applicants must submit a program application to audition. Applications can be submitted online or you can bring the application to the auditions. There are a $65 application fee for long-term programs and $50 application fee for short-term workshop required.

All musical theatre applicants must prepare a 60-90 second monologue from a published contemporary American play or screenplay and two short contrasting musical theatre songs.

When auditioning in person, please bring your own accompaniment on CD or iPod for your musical selections. When choosing audition selections, it is important to choose material that is age and type appropriate. It is also important to read the entire play, screenplay or libretto prior to your audition. Applications should be completed online or turned in prior to your audition in order to schedule your audition appointment. An Admissions Representative will contact you shortly after your audition with an admissions decision. Applicants may also make an appointment for a specific audition time at our New York or Los Angeles campus.

We want you to find pieces that excite you. But most importantly, we want you to find monologues and songs that you have a personal connection to. The more connected you are to the character’s circumstances, the more we get to see your talent and personality.
