Acting/Musical Theatre Auditions

UA Theatre and Dance holds two Audition Days each academic year – one in the fall and one in the spring. All applicants who wish to audition will be required to submit an application and a performance video. The video should include two contrasting monologues, each no more than thirty seconds in length (for a total of 60 seconds). Additionally, if participants wish to be considered for a BA or BFA in Musical Theatre, they should include 16 bars of a song and a piece of dance/movement no more than one minute in length. This dance/movement piece can be in any style, anyone’s choreography and to any genre of music. Once videos have been reviewed, students can be invited to attend Acting Auditions or Musical Theatre Auditions. Below you will find important deadlines and dates.
