The Gap

About the Course

The GAP is for those serious about an acting career. It’s not just about getting through school, it’s about getting you in to the industry. 

When you graduate you will be equipped with technical skills, resilience, practical industry application and business knowledge to launch your career. Graduates will have a guaranteed process into performance. 

Students are guided through a deep exploration, building fundamentals and evolving with the confidence to comfortably bring their own voice and story to their characters and their craft. This course is immersive and hands on and at the end you will have established your individual brand ready to meet the industry. 

How To Apply And Audition

Each year, entry to The GAP is by audition. Auditions are held at The Actors’ Hub and the audition fee is $60.  The actual audition length will be about 15 minutes, however candidates should allow up to an hour for the whole appointment. We recommend arriving 20 mins before your booked audition time as this allows enough time to arrive and get comfortable, complete your warmup and be ready without rushing. Click below for the audition format and to book your audition online.
