School of the Arts Audition Prep

Applying for the Theater Arts program at CCSD School of the Arts? 

SOA strongly recommends asking your teacher or a local theatre company to coach you through the audition process. And Charleston Academy of Musical Theatre wants you to be as prepared as you can be to succeed at your SOA audition.

Applicants for the 6th-12th grade SOA auditions are encouraged to book a private session for coaching with their monologues, improvisation, and interviews. Our Theatre Audition Workshop is also perfect for those looking to develop required audition skills for any audition.

Frequently Asked Questions:

How many times does my child need to work with you to be prepared?

The number of  sessions varies depending on the child. If a child has already been training in theatre then they tend to need only a few coaching sessions. If a child is less experienced then they will need more. On average students need between 4-6 coaching sessions to be fully prepared. 


What is provided during coaching?

Monologue selection and coaching

Interview coaching

Improv coaching


What does my child need to do?

Your child is expected to be off book (memorized on their monologue) by the next coaching session. Each session your child will have individualized goals set that need to be completed before we work again. 


Can you guarantee my child a spot at SOA?

There are no guarantees your child will get into SOA with any coaching. Our goal is to guide and make your child feel comfortable and prepared for the audition process.
