Audition Requirements – Performance

The Liberties College Performance course is a practical theatre course. The craft of performance encompasses many components, including movement and singing.

Please Note: Students do not have to be proficient in Movement and Singing to be accepted onto the course.

Entry to all Performance programmes in the College is by audition and interview.
