A rig­or­ous au­di­tion process

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

TO se­cure her place at AADA, El­lie was put un­der the spot­light of a rig­or­ous au­di­tion.

Af­ter fill­ing in a lengthy ques­tion­naire, El­lie went along to an au­di­tion at the Prince of Wales The­atre in London where she per­formed two pieces – play­ing Nora in Sean O Casey’s The Plough And The Stars and play­ing Su­san in Stephen Po­li­akoff’s City Sugar.

El­lie’s tough au­di­tion was rounded off with a lengthy in­ter­view where she was quizzed about her am­bi­tions and dreams.

Founded in 1884, the AADA in Madi­son Av­enue cel­e­brated its 125th an­niver­sary last year.

From its in­cep­tion, it has at­tracted tal­ented and com­mit­ted stu­dents from around the world to its act­ing school in New York and, since 1974, to its act­ing school in Los An­ge­les.

Through­out its his­tory, AADA fac­ulty has been among the most pro­gres­sive the­atri­cal the­o­rists and vi­sion­ar­ies of their day.
