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. 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.
  • 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.
