YOU MUST BE A HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR OR COLLEGE TRANSFER STUDENT

REGISTRATION:
Fill out the Audition/Scholarship Day Registration Form and return it by mail or fax. Musical theatre
applicants should also fill out the Supplemental Musical Theatre Application. These materials must be
received by Monday, January 24th.

ALL ACTORS:
Prepare a 90-second (or less) monologue of your choice (classic or contemporary) that best shows off
your acting skills. Please note that you will be cut off at the 90-second mark.

MUSICAL THEATRE:
In addition to the monologue, prepare two theatre songs (16-measure audition versions, but know the
complete songs): an up-tempo and a ballad. Women who can belt should include both belt and legit.
There will be an accompanist; bring sheet music. Do not sing a cappella or with recorded
accompaniment. There will also be a dance audition. Bring dance clothes, and character and jazz shoes,
if you have them.

CLOTHING:
Standard audition attire is required. Come dressed for the acting audition. Musical theatre applicants will
have a few minutes to change into dance clothing for the dance audition.

DESIGN/TECH & COSTUME DESIGN/PRODUCTION:
If available, bring examples of your design work. These designs can be realized work or class projects.
Drawings, sketches, models, and photos presented in an organized manner are a great way to show off
your skills. If you do not have design work prepared, do not be intimidated. You are still encouraged to
talk to our design faculty.

SNACKS will be available, but there will not be a lunch break. Eat before you arrive.

DAY OF AUDITIONS/INTERVIEWS:
11:00 AM – Registration in the lobby of Rowand-Johnson Hall on the UA Campus. You will be given
       audition numbers and a complete schedule of the day.
11:15 AM – Welcome and Introduction, Gallaway Theatre in Rowand-Johnson Hall
11:45 AM – Q&A for Parents with Department Chair William Teague
11:45 AM-5:30 PM Audition/Scholarship Day activities. These will include auditions, interviews,
       theatre workshops, campus tours, and meetings with UA Theatre majors.

NOTIFICATION OF ACCEPTANCE:
You will be notified by the end of February if you have been selected to receive a scholarship from the
Department of Theatre and Dance in the Fall of 2011. If auditioning for the Musical Theatre Track, you
will be notified of your status by the end of February.
