Theatre Audition Process

Admission to programs of study in the Department of Theatre are by audition only. Auditions for the Theatre Arts- Acting for Stage and Screen track (and theatre arts minor) consist of two contrasting monologues one minute in length. Students auditioning for the Theatre Arts – Musical Theatre track (and musical theatre minor) should present a musical theatre song, 16 to 32 bars, and a one-minute monologue. Musical Theatre majors and minors must bring sheet music in their chosen key as an accompanist will be provided.
