Auditioning for Theatre

Scholarships are awarded to students based on talent, commitment and academic performance.  GTA has an annual calendar of scholarship audition/portfolio events that enable prospective students to be our guests for a production and participate in other campus Open House activities.  Students auditioning for scholarships should be in the process of applying to Brenau University and must be declared theatre majors.

Performance majors (B.A. or B.F.A.) should prepare and present two contrasting, 60-second monologues. Candidates for the B.F.A. in Theatre with a Musical Theatre Emphasis must perform a one-minute segment of a song from a musical, with accompaniment on CD.  B.A. candidates are encouraged to perform a song, although this is optional.  Students will be required to learn and execute a brief dance combination, so please dress accordingly. Headshots and resumes are required of all.


B.F.A. candidates for the Design and Technology degree should bring in a resume and portfolio that demonstrates some preparation in technical and design areas.


Please fill out the top portion of this form and bring three copies with you to your audition.
