Regional Auditions

Be bold and play!

We aim to make auditions for our one and two year programmes as accessible as possible, so that anyone who is interested in training with us is able to join us on an audition day and experience this process. We are also aware that traveling to London for an audition is not always feasible, or can feel intimidating for some prospective students. 
Therefore, we are holding regional auditions at selected locations in the UK for our September 2020 intake – Fourth Monkey are coming to you
As with our London audition dates, regional auditions have zero audition fees and are open to any prospective students interested in actor training and drama school, whether you are reaching the end of your college or sixth form education, looking for further actor training having already completed a first degree or thinking about a complete career change.


  • Bilborough Sixth Form College, Nottingham
  • Newhampton Arts Centre, Wolverhampton
  • The Crescent Arts Centre, Belfast (collaborative day with Read College)
  • ARC Theatre, Stockton-on-Tees (collaborative day with Read College)


  • Saturday 29th February 
  • Sunday 19th April
  • Sunday 26th April (collaborative day with Read College)
  • Saturday 2nd May (collaborative day with Read College)

The details

We are very pleased to announce that we have now added a further three regional audition dates to our audition schedule for 2020! 
Following our first regional audition date at Bilborough Sixth Form College in Nottingham on Saturday 29th February, we will be coming to Newhampton Arts Centre in Wolverhampton, The Crescent Arts Centre in Belfast and ARC Theatre in Stockton-on-Tees on Sunday 19th April, Sunday 26th April and Saturday 2nd May respectively. What is more, two of these newly-launched audition dates, Sunday 26th April in Belfast and Saturday 2nd May in Stockton-on-Tees, will be a collaborative initiative with Read College to bring a full day audition opportunity from two leading drama schools to two regional locations, to make sure these opportunities continue to be accessible and open to all!”
As with audition dates at our North London training base, there are zero audition fees for students applying to audition for Fourth Monkey’s training programmes at these regional dates in collaboration with Read College, and prospective students may audition for either the BA (Hons) Acting Accelerated Degree* (*validation pending) or the Year of the Monkey one year intensive actor training programme.
All regional audition dates are open to anyone interested in Fourth Monkey’s approach to actor training and who wants to be bold and play – if you are interested, submit your completed application via the relevant link below and make sure you select the correct date for your preferred regional audition day!

What to expect

THE FIRST HALF requires you to deliver two audition speeches of your own choosing (one classical and one contemporary) to our panel, alongside an informal interview with members of the team. 
THE SECOND HALF follows in the afternoon, when we run a series of extensive ensemble based workshop sessions. Here, the panel will work with you in a variety of guises and disciplines to see how you work with other people. 
After the afternoon session, we will make decisions based on the observations we have made throughout the day. We will subsequently invite anyone we are interested in offering a place to on one of our training courses a FREE recall audition at our school in London – we think it is essential to give prospective students an opportunity to see the school and make sure it is the right fit for them (we want our actors-in-training to feel comfortable!) before they make any commitments. 
To make this recall process as accessible as possible, we have a limited number of travel bursaries available on request.
