Each spring, the Theatre Department hosts a Scholarship Day to allow prospective students the opportunity to compete for the various financial awards offered by the division. Auditions for Theatre are Saturday February 10, 2018.
If you are unable to attend the theatre audition on February 11, please contact Alan Litsey at (800) 523-5793, extension 4788, or (205) 226-4788 to schedule an alternative date on either February 7 or February 9 at 3:30 p.m.
Theatre scholarships are awarded based on an audition and interview with the theatre faculty. For musical theatre, the audition consists of sixteen measures each from two Broadway/Off Broadway songs and one monologue of no longer than one minute in length. Auditionees should choose material close to their age and experience -- please, no Shakespeare or dialects. An accompanist will be provided. Please make sure music is clearly marked, hole punched, and in a binder. For theatre, the audition consists of two monologues of no longer than one minute in length each. Each auditionee should provide an 8 X 10 headshot along with a resume and any letters of support.
All auditionees will participate in theatre games and have the opportunity for a one-on-one interview with a theatre faculty member. Students interested in technical theatre and design should bring with them a portfolio of their work.
