• Theatre

    Mandatory auditions will be handled via ACCEPTD after you have submitted your application.
    You will be able to upload the required pieces via the platform upon receipt of an email from Arlice Young. 

    Please be aware that acceptance into our Theatre program requires some

    after school and weekend practice and performances. 


    Audition Requirements: 

    ***Phase III Applicants (if you applied between March 11 and August 2022) will only do Part 1 of the Audition Requirements outlined below unless requested otherwise. ***

    Part 1:

    All students should prepare, memorize, and video-record a 60 second monologue from a published play (no self-written monologues). The monologue should be recorded with no cuts and from a distance in order to see movement and gesture. No "selfie" monologues.

    • Search for monologues within the age range of 15-25 years of age, and ones that allow for reactions. Please stay away from narrative/story monologues.  

    Should you be more interested in the Technical side of Theatre than in the Performance side, please upload a portfolio of work you have done in stage or film production IN ADDITION TO your prepared monologue. 


    Part 2 - Call Back (only upon invitation):

    This will be a group audition in which you will meet virtually with the instructor and engage in improvisational activities with other applicants. 


    Call Back Session Length:

    15 minutes
