Course information

To be accepted on our musical theatre courses, students must audition first. If you need any further information, please don't hesitate to contact us at info@theicmt.com.


You will need to prepare 2 contrasting songs of your choice (1 ideally musical theatre). You should bring sheet music with you to the audition, and each song should last no longer than 2 minutes.
The panel will take into consideration: acting-through-song, range, tone, interpretation, technique and musicality.


You will need to prepare a monologue of your choice that is no longer than 3 minutes.
The panel will take into consideration: truth, text connection and understanding, characterisation, vocal clarity, projection, and presentation.


You will take part in a group jazz class led by a member of our faculty. You will learn a routine and work through techniques to demonstrate technique, musicality, spatial awareness, timing, style, and presentation.

If you are auditioning via video, you will be given a link to a dance routine to learn. There is a routine for beginner/intermediate levels and another routine for advanced levels.


Applicants will undergo a short interview with a senior member of the ICMT team. This is an opportunity for us to get to know each other and for you to tell us why you would make a great ICMT student.
