Audition Process

Admission to programs of study in the Department of Theatre are by audition only. Auditions for the Theatre Arts program consist of two contrasting monologues one minute in length. Students auditioning for the Musical Theatre program must present a musical theatre song and a one-minute monologue. Musical Theatre majors must bring sheet music in their chosen key as an accompanist will be provided (a CD or MP3 will suffice).  

For the program in Theatre Technology and Design, students should prepare a portfolio that demonstrates their skill and experience in technical production or design for theatre and/or artistic disciplines such as drawing, painting, drafting or computer graphics.

All auditions will involve an interview with Theatre faculty and a question-and-answer session.
