Open Houses & Theatre Merit Scholarships

It is with great sadness that I inform you that due to the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) the Department of Theatre & Film has made the difficult decision to cancel its upcoming Open Houses for this academic year. We deeply regret that you will be unable to spend a day in our department, engaging with our wonderful faculty, staff, and students, sitting in on classes and workshops, and attending performances and film screenings.

However, if you are a high school senior or transfer student who would still like to apply (film), audition (performance), or interview (design and theatre production/management) for entry into either our BFA in Film Production, BFA in Acting for Stage & Screen, or our BFA in Design & Theatre Production, or for our Theatre Merit Scholarships, you can still do so. (If you are in an early year of high school, we encourage you to attend one of our Open Houses next year!)

Please visit our guide to What to Prepare for applications, auditions, and interviews for additional information about entry into each of our BFA programs as well as forms where you can submit your materials or schedule interviews. If you have questions about any of our programs or will be in town and would like a tour of our facilities please contact us.

Again, I am very sorry that you will be unable to visit our exciting department but I hope that you will submit materials for consideration.

Thank you.

Chair, Department of Theatre & FilmĀ
