“Fourth Monkey fills a massive void in the theatrical landscape. It cuts out the nonsense, it doesn’t ask you be a tree or play fire whilst walking through treacle. Instead it offers aspiring actors the chance to develop and enhance their craft through essential active exploration and performance. It prepares them for the reality of theatre and the discipline and tenacity that’s required to succeed. I’m thrilled to be able to play a small part in that.”

Toby Clarke -Writer and Director


Audition applications open annually from October 1st.

Audition fees of £25 can be paid via paypal or alternatively via cheque, please select your chosen form of payment at the relevant stage of the application process and follow the instructions accordingly.

The Audition

Our audition process is not a conveyer belt nor do we wish to intimidate you, in fact quite the contrary we want you to relax and be yourself! We also value meeting the individual behind the speeches and all of our first round auditions include an interview. In regard to the audition itself, we do ask you to prepare two contrasting speeches of your own choosing, one classical and one contemporary. Each lasting no more than two minutes.

Additionally, if you consider yourself a singer please prepare one song to be sung unaccompanied. Equally ensure you inform us of any additional skills that may be of interest in your interview.

Successful first round candidtates will be recalled for a company ensemble workshop with the Artistic Director and leading practitioners from the training programme.

Please Note: Your choice to sing does not influence our decision in regard to your suitability for our performance training programmes.
