Theatre Auditions


An audition is required for students interested in pursuing Musical Theatre, Theatre Education and Theatre Performance. An interview and portfolio/resume review is required for students interested in pursuing Theatre Design and Technology. This process allows the faculty to assess a student's current skill level and give scholarship consideration.
