Theatre Performance Audition Requirements


  1. Monologues: Two memorized monologues selected from two different plays
  2. Song: One 16-bar (one-minute portion) of a song from standard musical theatre repertoire
  3. Headshot: Please submit a standard headshot or photo

Audition Guidance:
Candidates are strongly urged to read the plays in their entirety before auditioning. Each monologue should be no more than two minutes in length. The audition selections should display contrasting styles, such as comic and serious, verse and prose, or classical and contemporary. Candidates should sing their musical theatre selection a cappella or provide recorded accompaniment. Please time selections carefully.

How to Submit your Materials:
Applicants are highly encouraged to participate in a live audition. Auditions are pre-scheduled during a campus visit or applicants may register to audition at a regional site on the Audition Tour in January 2016.  

If a live audition is not possible, applicants are required to submit their audition materials digitally. After you start the application for admission, create an account on DecisionDesk and upload your work under your Interlochen Application ID number as a "Theatre Performance" candidate.

Campus Visit:
We highly encourage all applicants to plan a campus visit!  The schedule may include an audition or artistic meeting with our Director of Theatre Arts, a full tour of campus including the Harvey Theatre and Phoenix Theatre,  an opportunity to meet and interact with current students, and a chance to observe classes in session.
