Audition Requirements

All high school applicants audition and interview in person. Taped auditions cannot be accepted. Following the audition, there will be an interview portion. We do not offer pre-screen auditions. Please prepare the following for your audition:

  • Two contrasting monologues:
    • Each monologue should stand on its own.
    • Do not use accents, dialects or stylized characters.
    • Audition pieces should be selected from published plays. Read the complete play.
    • Do not use monologues or speeches from movies.
    • Do not use generic monologue books as a source of material.
  • You must sing 16 bars of a song without accompaniment. You may use a pitch pipe if desired or an app for a pitch pipe.
  • The monologues and song must not exceed four minutes total.
  • Dress comfortably. No torn jeans or T-shirts.
  • We do not offer pre-screen auditions.
  • High school applicants who pass the audition and interview are required to participate in a call-back with the director of the High School Drama Program and a Residence Life representative.
