Theatre Performance Scholarship Requirements

Students auditioning for a theatre scholarship should prepare a two minute audition. This audition must include either

  • One monologue and one song. If auditioning with a song, please bring your own sheet music with beginning, end and any cuts clearly marked. An accompanist will be provided on-site.

Theatre Design and Technology Scholarship Requirements

Students with an additional interest in an area of theatre design and technology will have the opportunity to interview with a faculty member. Please bring a portfolio with samples of your work (pictures, drawings, paperwork, etc.)

Dance Scholarship Auditions
