Theatre Auditions

Auditions / Interviews are required for all degree programs. This process allows the faculty to assess a student's current skill level and give scholarship consideration.

We have concluded our audition tour for the 2014-2015 academic year. However, individual on-campus audition / interview appointments can still be arranged by contacting a faculty member in your area of interest:

Costume and Makeup Design, interview and portfolio review (if applicable) with Anne Medlock.

Musical Theatre, contact Royal Brantley.

Please prepare two musical theatre selections: one ballad and one up-tempo. The up-tempo selection should include some choreography. Piano accompanists are not always available, so bring a cd or cassette recording of your music. Also, prepare one contemporary monologue that is 90 to 120 seconds in length. Please choose an age-appropriate monologue and avoid the use of accents or dialects.

Scenic and Lighting Design, interview and portfolio review (if applicable) with Tana Roberson.

Technical Direction and Stage Management, interview and facilities tour with John Landon.

If applicable, bring examples of your technical or stage management production experience.

Theatre Performance and Theatre Education, contact Stephen Crandall.

Please prepare two contrasting, contemporary monologues. Your audition should be no more than 3 to 3 1/2 minutes in total length. Please choose age-appropriate monologues and avoid the use of accents or dialects.
