How can I join Big Spirit?

  • Big Spirit is for young actors aged 14-19 years of age

  • We hold auditions twice a year. The main auditions are held each July (for yearly membership) plus other auditions for entry in December/ January (for half-year membership)

  • The auditions consist of a one minute speech (there are sample one minute speeches on this website) plus a few questions. Have a question to ask us too by the way – you might have lots to ask about Big Spirit and we’d like to hear from you.

  • If you’re 16 or over when you audition we’d like to hear TWO one-minute speeches from you, one from a modern play and one from a Shakespeare play. Again sample speeches are available on this website.

  • The cost of membership for 2016-17 is just £360 per year. If you compare the costs of going to a commercial stage school you’ll see that we are great value for money.

  • We’ll even show you how to audition! We run a group alongside Big Spirit called Big Spirit Foundation that runs every Sunday from 1pm to 2.30pm Here you will learn all the skills you need to present yourself well at audition plus a whole host of other acting and presentational skills. The cost of each 90 minute session is just £8 (which works out at less than £6 per hour!). You can either pay per session or £80 per term - a saving of £16. [Each term = 12 weeks]. For more information about how to join BS Foundation, send us a message and we’ll get back to you.
