Audition Requirements

BFA Acting

Everyone must perform one monologue from the approved list (see Men's/Women's Monologues below); no substitutions.  Please be prepared to do a second monologue of your choice; this can be any material you feel is appropriate for an audition that shows your strengths and is not from our required monologue list. Bring your headshot and a one-page resume with you to your audition. Your resume should include your name, address, phone number, and e-mail.

Men's Monologues

AND

TWO Musical Theatre songs. Sing two contrasting musical theatre songs: one ballad and one up-tempo. Each song should be 16 bars (approximately 45 seconds each). An accompanist will be provided in Tucson & Phoenix only.  Bring your music in the key in which you will be singing, printed (double-sided), hole-punched in a binder. For the Tucson & Phoenix auditions, you may not sing with a recording. For the Los Angeles auditions, please bring your own CD or digital player (an MP3 connection or CD player will be provided for you.) 

Bring your headshot and a one-page resume with you. Your resume should include your name, address, phone number, and e-mail.

Dance Audition  (Musical Theatre applicants Only)

All Musical Theatre applicants auditioning in Tucson or Phoenix must participate in a dance audition where they will be taught a short combination. They will be evaluated on technique, application of style, performance and overall potential for growth. 

Applicants should wear dance/exercise wear that is comfortable to move in and flattering to the body.  Can include the following:

  • Women: leotards, tights, fitted jazz pants, or dance skirts (above knee) and fitted shorts. Please wear character shoes & bring jazz or ballet shoes as well.
  • Men: T-shirts, tank tops, leotards, fitted jazz pants or fitted shorts. Please wear jazz shoes or ballet shoes.

All Musical Theatre applicants auditioning in Los Angeles or cities other than Tucson/Phoenix, are required to submit a video file of 45-60 seconds of dance, in whatever dance discipline you are most comfortable.  We are interested in finding a diverse group of individuals and want to see where you are in your dance training. Video should include full body and you should wear dance/exercise attire to show a clean line.  Instructions about how to submit the dance video will be given out at the auditions.


Online Audition Requirements See Acceptd

Online audition submissions will be considered through Acceptd  if you cannot attend auditions in person.
