AUDITION REQUIREMENTS

Acting for Film
Musical Theatre


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 submitted online or brought to the audition. There is a $65 application fee required.

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

Your monologues must be age appropriate and from a legitimate source material, published play or screenplay. 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. For video submissions please make sure to include your name and the title of the piece you are performing. 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
To audition for the musical theatre programs at the New York Film Academy, prospective students must submit an application. Applications can be submitted online or brought to the audition. There is a required $65 application fee for the 1 & 2-Year Musical Theatre Programs and a $50 application fee for the 4-Week Musical Theatre Workshop.

Please prepare one 60-90 second monologue from a published contemporary American play and two short contrasting musical theatre songs. We will not accept acapella auditions (singing without music).

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). For video submissions please make sure to include your name and the title of the piece you are performing.

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.
