Recall for major film

My daughter recently auditioned for a lead role in a huge film, we hear back from her agency to say that they like to check her availability between now and end of august ready for a callback.

How long does it take to hear about your callback, its been a week?

Re: Bird Reserve List

My daughter was offered a place and is now waiting to hear from them regarding the DaDA but I think they are still working through the online auditions. At the moment my DD has the paperwork for 2nd round for DaDA at Italia Conti and a place at Wilkes Academy with a 50% scholarship. I am a bit confu...

They all travelled over from Ireland - 4 did auditio...

Hi After receiving lots of offers, it looks like my daughter is going to be heading off to Wilkes Academy (her first choice school) on a 50% scholarship. She is pleased to get a scholarship when she did video audition a couple of days before the closing date. Is there anyone else who is heading off...

Re: ? Uncertainty re college resumption in Sept 2020

I heard the Cambridge interview and like the spokeman for the government said, its pretty crazy for making that kind of statement with 3+ months to go. I hope this isn't going to affect Colleges start dates, things don't add up, how come other countries are nearly back to normal and countries such a...

Re: Auditioning for 2020 entry

My daughter auditioned for the Diploma at Performers College last weekend and has 2 more auditions to go. What is everyone's opinion on Performers, I liked it bu that is because its only 35 minute drive away. Waiting for her Wilkes Academy audition to come through, which is her favourite, but otherw...

Re: Auditioning for 2020 entry

Great, just wanted to hear if I can transfer the audition deposit by baca. We watched their videos last night on You Tube and our daughter was amazed. The biggest issue is she is 15 so when she was offered the scholarship audition is was excited it that isn’t for this year so now she will need a sch...

Re: Auditioning for 2020 entry

Thanks, that is what I had heard, they are up and coming and when she brought the certificate for audition scholarship over the parents we were with said they’re excellent’. I contacted them last night and it will be great to hear how your daughter gets on. Good luck 😉

Re: Auditioning for 2020 entry

Has anyone audition for Wilkes, my daughter is blown away by their performances and wants to audition. Sadly she has a scholarship audition for Wilkes but it for 2021?

It’s a school we know nothing about.

Re: Auditioning for 2020 entry

We are going talk tonight. I have contacted CYD and it is for next year but it’s great to be scouted anyway. She has offers at Stella Mann, Bird and Italia Conti already with Performers audition next week. She was going to audition for Laines and then changed her mind.
