The Music Theatre Auditions for 2021 have concluded.  We anticipate a return to in-person auditions taking place during an event on our campus for 2022 prospective students.  Updated information will be provided as soon as it is available. The information included below is included to assist future students in understanding the audition elements and requirements considered by our Music Theatre Council when making admission decisions.  

There are three elements to every audition and students will be considered for their talent in vocal performance, acting, and dance. Students who audition for the Music Theatre Program are automatically considered for the B.F.A. Acting Program.
