  • a résumé that highlights depth and dimension of experience in theatre (acting, directing, design and technology)
  • two recommendations from theatre teachers, directors, coaches or mentors that discuss creative abilities, training and potential

Send materials by Nov. 15 (Early Decision I candidates) or Jan. 15 (Regular Decision and Early Decision II candidates); using SlideRoom.

On-Campus Competition

Finalists for theatre merit scholarships will participate in these on-campus activities:

  • Theatre performance - performance of two contrasting monologues (no cuts necessary for time constraints) and participation in movement, voice and improvisation workshops
