Admission to the Program
As a Theatre student, you’ll need to meet all of the required standards for admission to the University. Beginning with the Fall 2017 semester, all students who have been admitted to the University and who wish to join the program as Theatre students should plan to audition/interview for admission to the program. Students who are unable to attend the on-campus audition the Spring before they enroll in the University will be admitted to the Theatre program conditionally. Faculty will monitor your progress in your first year and discuss your options for continuing in the program during appointments in the Spring term at the end of your first year.
Continuing to Graduation
If you are a student in the Theatre program, it is mandatory that you audition for the mainstage Theatre productions each semester, and accept any roles in which you are cast. You will also be expected to attend all studio classes and satisfactorily complete any production roles to which you are assigned (including working in the scene or costume shops, filling a backstage production role, or other duties as assigned by faculty overseeing the production).
