Theatre Arts - Theatre Arts Auditions
Theatre Arts Auditions
In order to pursue the B.A. in theatre arts at Salve Regina, students must apply and be accepted to the University. Auditions for the theatre arts program (B.A. and minor) are strongly recommended but not required.
Current students who wish to pursue the B.A. or minor in theatre arts should contact Tara Brooke Watkins, program coordinator, to gain approval and/or arrange an audition.
Requirements for Prospective Students
Students who are applying for fall admission complete a two-step application process.
Step 1: Apply to Salve Regina
Apply using the Common Application and select theatre arts as your major.
Step 2: Apply to the Theatre Arts Program
Once your application to Salve Regina has been submitted, you will receive a login for your student status page, where you can complete the audition form and upload your pre-recorded video. This is required by Feb. 15 for scholarship consideration. Results of the arts scholarship competition will be announced by March 15.
Applicants should record two monologues, each one minute in length. One monologue should be from a classical work (written/published before 1875), and the second should be from a modern work (written/published after 1900). Actors who are interested in musical theater may perform the modern monologue and up to 24 bars of music. Students may also provide a link to video recordings of performances as supplemental material.
Students interested in design/technical theater should provide a portfolio with pictures and/or samples of production work, or work that demonstrates ability as an artist, technician or manager.
After submission of your video or portfolio, a date and time will be coordinated for a live, virtual interview.
