The on-site audition for Theatre includes a series of performances. No portfolio submission is required.
- Performance of a memorized dramatic or comedic monologue from a published play (1-minute maximum); cold read; improvisation. Applicants will introduce the monologue by stating the name of the play, the name of the playwright, and the name of the character. The introduction will not count toward the 1-minute maximum allotted time.
- Applicants should not use costumes. Minimal props may be used for the monologue, but only if they do not distract from the quality of the performance.
