Candidates must prepare the following for the audition:
- A free choice of one monolog from the classic and one from the modern repertoire, each no more than six minutes long. A third monolog is recommended, but not essential.
- A free choice of song. (During the examination (preliminary round), a répétiteur is not present.)
- Besides any costume, please bring comfortable clothing to the audition.
To assist with choosing a monolog, we recommend the "Monolog" books published by the Henschel Verlag, for example: "101 Monologe"
The day of the preliminary audition (preliminary examination) for the Acting course is typically organized as follows:
Morning: Personal application interview, viewing of each applicant’s first monolog. Note: Monologs are not always viewed in their entirety.
If a candidate passes round 1, they are invited to the afternoon round.
Afternoon: Viewing of the second monolog – possibly collaborative role development – performance of the song – possibly improvizations.
If a candidate passes round 2, they are invited to the final round.
Final round for the Acting course:
This round is in the form of a combined workshop lasting several days.
Besides improvizations and work on the audition roles, dance/movement and voice/singing are also examined.
In some cases, applicants are given individual tasks to prepare for the final round.
The examining panel consists of at least 5 examiners.
