Her modern monologue is American (though definitely able to do in own accent), and though this will be okay for some of the audition places it won’t be okay ...

Re: Auditioning for 2020 entry

Re: Looking ahead and being realistic!

If she is strong all round and is a true triple threat with string acting then dont forget to include Rose Buford and Mountview and Central in her list of potential schools. These are among the strongest in the country. Unfortunately she wouldn’t get any f/t musical theatre training at Rose Bruford...
