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.
