BA Musical Theatre Auditions

If you're applying for our BA (Hons) Musical Theatre or BA (Hons) Musical Theatre with Foundation Year course you'll be asked to prepare one song from the list below. If you are not able to send us an audition piece from the list below please send us a song of your choice and we’ll contact you if we need to see more.

You can use either a live accompanist or a backing track. Please email admissions-ahss@aru.ac.uk (home applications) or internationaladmissions@aru.ac.uk (international applications) with a link to a video or recording of you performing a piece. Include your name, the course you are applying for and student ID number.

Please host the video on a video sharing site such as YouTube or Vimeo - you can set it as 'unlisted' and send us just the link. If you are unable to share your video via a video sharing site please use a file sharing service such as Google Drive or Drop Box. To do this, you need to ensure your file is less than 1GB. If you use WeTransfer please send us the link from your email address as our servers sometimes block WeTransfer emails.
