Department of Theatre Arts

Future Students

Thank you for a great 2013-2014 audition season!!!
 
  • Theatre Arts applicants must interview and/or audition with the Theatre Arts faculty to be admitted into the BFA in Acting or BA in Theatre Arts concentrations in Theatre Performance, Directing, Design & Technical Production, or Producing & Management. 
  • Applicants interested in the BA in the Theatre Arts major with concentrations in Writing for the Stage, Theatre Studies, or Performance & Digital Media do not require an interview for acceptance.  The Department requires an interview only if students would like to be considered for a competitive scholarship.  Typically the interview is done over the phone.  Please visit Acceptd at to upload your required material for scholarship consideration.  These non-interview programs are the perfect complement to the College’s English, History, and Communications Arts majors, should a student wish to consider a double major.

SCHEDULING YOUR AUDITION/INTERVIEW
On Campus

To schedule an interview and/or audition in New York City, please complete the Online Interview/Audition Form. You may also call Theatre Admissions at (212) 774-0767.  Once your audition slot has been confirmed, you will receive further information about what to prepare and the format of the interview/audition.  Please do not make any travel arrangements until your audition slot has been confirmed.

All prospective students and their families are invited to attend the information sessions about our Theatre Arts programs that are offered at each of the Saturday interview/audition dates. At these sessions faculty present an overview of the College and Theatre Arts programs, and answer your questions.

Prospective students for the concentrations in Design & Technical Production and Producing & Management are interviewed by faculty on Fridays, the day before scheduled Saturday interview/audition dates. 

 
Off-Campus

To schedule an interview and/or audition at one of our regional sites, please proceed to our site on Acceptd at www.getacceptd.com/MarymountManhattan for further instruction.  Once the faculty has reviewed your digital material on Acceptd, applicants will be notified as to whether they will be granted a regional audition/interview.  Please do not make travel arrangements until you have been granted an audition slot from the Theatre Department.  In your confirmation letter for your off-campus interview/audition you will be notified as to how those interview/audition days will be conducted. 

All applicants are strongly encouraged to interview/audition in person. If extraordinary circumstances prevent travel to New York City or a regional site, a digital portfolio may be submitted through Acceptd.  Please refer to www.getacceptd.com/MarymountManhattan for further submission requirements.

 

Admissions Process

The Admissions Office of the College must receive your admissions application to the College at least three weeks prior to your scheduled interview or audition, in order for you to interview or audition for Theatre Arts. Your admissions file for the College does not need to be completed with transcripts, test scores, essays, and recommendations, but the application must be received for a prospective student to be interviewed and/or auditioned for Theatre Arts. An online MMC admissions application is available on the Admissions web page.  Please keep in mind that we can not release your Theatre decision until you have been admitted academically to the College.

 

Scholarships

Based on your audition or interview and your academic record and family need, Competitive Scholarships may be awarded in both the BA in Theatre Arts and the BFA in Acting. Your admissions file to the College must be completed in the Admissions Office by March 17 to be considered for a Competitive Scholarship. Any admissions file completed after this date will be considered for a Competitive Scholarship based on remaining funds available. No additional written application is required for Competitive Scholarships.
