Thank you for booking an audition for the Howard fine acting studio full time course

Below you will find some information about the HFAS audition process, as well as a download link for the audition pieces. We recommend reading all the information very carefully and someone will be in touch soon in regards to scheduling your audition. Please also ensure that you have emailed a copy of your headshot and CV to

What to prepare

Please prepare two monologues. The first must be from the list of Male Monologues or Female Monologues provided (links provided at the bottom). The second monologue can be one of your choosing or it can also be from The Studio selections. Your personal monologue selection can be classic or contemporary, and from any playwright. In addition to preparing your two monologues, we strongly advise you to read Howard’s book ‘Fine on Acting: A Vision of the Craft’, paying particular attention to the chapter on the ‘Eight Steps’. It is also highly recommend that you read the entire play from which your monologues are taken. We also encourage you to audit one of our Scene Study classes, or a Master Class with Howard Fine, as this provides the best insight into the way we work at The Studio. 

The Audition Timeline

Auditions for the Howard Fine Acting Studio Full-Time course typically take place on a rolling basis from August - November. Upon receiving your application, we will contact you to schedule an audition time for the next available audition day. We recommend auditioning early on in the process, in order to take advantage of auditing and other opportunities to attend Studio events that are offered to auditionees. All auditionees will receive confirmation as to their application status by early December. 

You will audition individually, in front of a Howard Fine Acting Studio faculty member and one of the Studio managers. There will also be a brief interview component as part of the audition process. 

Interstate applicants  

Interstate applicants are invited to travel to The Studio in Melbourne to complete their audition. If applying from interstate, we recommend applying as early as possible, in order to secure a convenient audition date and time.

If you are unable to travel to Melbourne, we are able to arrange a live Skype audition (which may fall outside the audition period outlined above). 

Please also note that we do not accept pre-recorded video auditions.
