College Auditions

Audition Guidelines for students


College auditions are open to all current Juniors set to graduate in May 2021. 

Musical & Acting: 

  • Auditions are 90 seconds TOTAL. (Does not include slate. Slate = your name, audition selection titles, written/composed by...) 

  • Acting = 2 contrasting monologues 

  • Musical = 1 song selection and 1 monologue 

  • Not included in 90 seconds is a moment to speak with accompanist about tempo 

  • Time keeper will cut you off at 90 second mark. 

  • Wear an outfit that makes you easily identifiable. Try to avoid IE blacks. 

  • Contrasting monologues does not necessarily mean Shakespearian and modern. Think creatively 




  • Auditions are “round robin” style 

  • 2-3 minutes with a college rep then they move to next table 

  • You get a table to set up examples of your work. Ex: portfolios, realized costume designs, stage manager binders, etc. 

  •  Bring water, have equipment charged up, & plan for no WIFI 


Call Backs: College reps will begin posting call back lists throughout the audition process. During callback time, selected students will visit with individual college reps at their booth locations.
