Acting requires an audition consisting of two monologues, a Shakespearean and a contemporary piece. Aspiring singers have the option to prepare a sixteen bar song to perform and dramaturgy applicants must provide two samples of their writing.

Renowned for high quality seasonal productions as well as emphasizing classical theatre and unappreciated works in dramatics, this is the perfect environment to improve one’s acting skills and obtain the required knowledge to become successful after completion of the course.
