- About Us
Any student wishing to enroll as a Theatre Arts major at Parkside must interview and/or audition with members of the theatre faculty prior to admission to the program. Prospective theatre arts majors will not be officially accepted into the department until this important on-campus interview process is completed.
The interview/audition process offers the prospective student the opportunity to visit the campus, meet theatre students and faculty, attend free productions, qualify for talent scholarships, and share important details about past experience and future goals and expectations. The interview/audition process also provides the theatre faculty with an opportunity to better know each prospective student's theatrical experience and talents, educational goals, and career expectations.
Please note that our company is "capped" at 65 total majors, including actors, designers, stage managers, and technicians. Like any professional theatre, we strive to balance the skills, talents, and gifts of our company members. This is a major factor of consideration in the program entry audition selection process. Some talented individuals may be denied acceptance into the program.
Every prospective theatre arts major must prepare the following materials as a part of the interview/audition process:
