Undergraduate Audition & Interview Dates

2023-2024

Auditions and interviews will be held in both in-person and virtual formats for the coming season. For programs who have the option to audition/interview virtually or in person, candidates will be given full and equal consideration regardless of which format is chosen.

Upon receiving an invitation to audition/interview, you will have the opportunity to register for your preferred date (and format, when applicable). Our in-person audition days will be held at limited capacity.

Detailed Audition Information

Auditions and interviews will be scheduled after a successful review of an applicant’s complete application materials, submitted no later than the application deadline. All audition invitations with date confirmations will be sent via email on a rolling basis. Be sure to review your program’s audition and pre-screening requirements before submission.

Around 8-10 days before your audition, you will receive an email confirming your audition details (date, time, location, and/or Zoom meeting information when applicable). Questions should be directed to [email protected].

Rescheduling Policy

We understand that sometimes things happen, but whenever possible please let us know at least 24 hours in advance if you cannot attend your audition/interview.

If you ask to reschedule, we will do our very best to accommodate you but understand it may not always be possible.
