Admission Auditions and Portfolio Reviews

Auditions/interviews for the four BFA concentrations are a two-step process. Please read the process below carefully.

Step 1: All students accepted into the programs must first go through a prescreening process online or at one of the various regional auditions/interviews attended by the faculty from Coastal Carolina University's Department of Theatre. 

Step 2: If you are selected for a final interview/audition, you will be invited to a full audition/interview on campus.

Note: The BA in Theatre program is an open degree program that does not require an audition/interview for entrance.

Step 1: Submit Your Prescreening Digital Application

Review of the screening audition/interviews will be closed when we fill our audition slots. Please follow this link in order to submit the video audition/interview.

Step 2: Wait for Prescreening Decision and Invited Audition

Your screening audition/interview will be reviewed by our screening committee. You will be contacted to inform you if you were selected for the next round of auditions. If you are selected, you will be invited to interview/audition with our faculty on-campus. 

Our on-campus audition/interviews are a full-day event. The day will primarily consist of a series of workshops intended to determine your training, your ability to take direction, and your ability to land within the ensemble. The day will also include a campus tour, participation in an open forum with current students, and lunch.
