Drama Centre 2016

10th February 2016.

What to prepare: 

You need a classical piece (in verse is specified) and a contemporary for them is after like 1840 so you have a lot of scope there. They also ask you to fill in a speech form, an about you form and write a 300 word statement on why you are applying to Drama Centre. I did what I said not to do and did all the paperwork the night before…whoops.

The actual day: 

My audition time wasn’t till 12.30 so had a nice journey planned and all went well till I got to London and couldn’t find my Oyster card so had to buy a day pass for £12.10 and then as I am waiting on the platform it is announced there are no eastbound trains and so I have to run to a different line and go on a roundabout way. Luckily I get to the school 15 minutes early still. It is a small group and we head up, speaking to the student helper a lot of people didn’t turn up throughout the day though. There is only one panel on a Wednesday which is different to Saturday auditions when there are usually 3 panels. I go in quite late in the group. My modern goes shite, like really shite, so shite that as soon as I finish it I know I won’t be recalled because it was so shite. It was shite. Shakespeare went okay and interview was okay, they asked me one question but I knew that was a courtesy as I wasn’t going to be recalled. Went out and waited for the list.

The result: 

I wasn’t on the list.

Overall thoughts and feelings: 

I felt really shit about this one and still do because I fucked it up, I just didn’t connect at all to my modern and I fucked it. I couldn’t walk out the room thinking I did my best work because that was shite. I do now just need to put it behind me but I am angry at myself because I really love Drama Centre and I fucked it up.
