What to expect at auditions


We understand that auditioning for the first time, or any time for that matter can be daunting! Don't worry, YESPA is an open and welcoming company and we strive to support our members throughout the audition process in the best possible ways.

Our auditions always start with 'welcomes' and 'warm-ups' to make everyone feel comfortable, prepared, and in the right frame of mind to perform. During your audition, we are always looking for the best in each performer, and we're not looking to catch people out!

So prepare your material beforehand to the best of your ability and enjoy performing to us!

Casting decisions and theatre as a collaboration


Not all of your principal auditions will be successful and we've all experienced the let down of rejection. You may not have the part you wanted but we remind you that everyone's contribution to a show's performance is important and valued. Theatre is a collaborative effort and performances are always better when everyone works together.

The creative team are looking to create an entire ensemble, and not just focus on individuals with parts that are more important than others. So trust their decisions, see the production as a whole, and perform to your best in whatever acting role you're in..
