During the online open day, prospective students can hear about the financial support available for full-time training at Liverpool Theatre School. There will also be an opportunity to learn more about the auditions process, which will take place in an online video format for the next academic year, due to the Covid-19 disruption.

Maxine Ellis, Principal at Liverpool Theatre School, which has been rated ‘outstanding in all areas’ by Ofsted, explains: “This is a crucial time for school and college leavers who are making important future choices and we want to make sure they have all the information they need to help with planning their next steps. The virtual open day is designed to give young performers considering full-time professional training in musical theatre, contemporary dance or acting a chance to find out more about the exciting opportunities at Liverpool Theatre School.

“Our team of incredibly talented staff will also be on hand to answer any questions and offer guidance on everything from the technical skills covered during training to the guest workshops and performance opportunities available to our students. The virtual open day aims to reassure aspiring young performers that we are here for them during these challenging times and we are really looking forward to inspiring and connecting with potential new students attending this online event.”
