Acceptance to the program occurs on a rolling basis - there is no application deadline - however, we encourage students to complete their applications by February 15th to ensure that spots remain available in the program. Candidates will interview with members of the theatre design faculty and staff in person or virtually. The interview is designed to allow the potential student an opportunity to speak about their work in theater and the arts and share any information about themselves and their interest in the theatre. Please note that a formal portfolio presentation with realized design work is not necessary to have a successful interview. For the interview, dress professionally and comfortably. Your portfolio materials, whether in person or online, will be viewed prior to your scheduled interview so that during the interview we can spend time getting to know you and your theatre passions.
On your interview day, you will have the opportunity to speak to some of our current students and receive a tour of our facilities. You will also have the opportunity to ask the faculty any questions you may have about our program during your interview.
Applicants should upload any of the following items to their GetAccepted application and contact Kathryn Wagner with questions.
- Photos of Theatre Production Work
- Any other art or design-related work (art projects, photography or schoolwork)
- Examples of carpentry, sewing, craft skills, etc.
- Examples of any drafting (may be architectural, industrial, mechanical, etc.)
- Graphic work or projects (posters, programs, t-shirt designs, etc.)
