On-Campus Auditions

Follow Musical Theatre!

If you will be auditioning for our program here on University Park Campus, you will be receiving an email approximately two weeks prior to your scheduled audition date that will invite you to spend the Friday before your audition with us.

Spending the day with us prior to your audition will allow you to attend and observe our classes, meet our current students, and participate in a Q&A with JOHN SIMPKINS, Head of Musical Theatre Degree Programs. Also, if we're having a rehearsal or performance that night you're welcome to attend that as well! Spending some time with us prior to your audition will not only give you a chance to really learn what our program is like and talk to current students, but it will give you a chance to familiarize yourself with campus so you'll be more relaxed for your audition on Saturday morning.

The on-campus audition dates for 2019-2020 are:
December 7, 2019
December 14, 2019
January 25, 2020
February 1, 2020
February 22, 2020
