Admission Auditions and Portfolio Reviews
Audition/interviews for the various B.F.A. programs are a two-step process. All students accepted into the programs must first go through a prescreening process either online or at one of the various regional audition/interviews attended by the faculty from Coastal Carolina University's Department of Theatre.
The B.A. program is a program designed for the student to draw from the various areas and is an open degree program that does not require an audition/interview for entrance.
Review of the screening audition/interviews will be closed as of February 5, 2020. Please follow this link in order to submit the video audition/interview.

After You have Submitted Your Digital Audition
After you have submitted your screening audition/interview, you will be contacted as to your status. If passed through you will be invited to attend an on-campus audition/interview or meet with our faculty at the regional audition/interview in Chicago. Our on-campus audition/interviews are a full-day event. The day will primarily consist of a series of workshops intended to determine your acceptance to training, your ability to take direction and your ability to land within the ensemble. The day will also include an on campus tour, participation in an open forum with current students and lunch with faculty and students. At the end of the day you and your family will be our guests at a University production.
By the end of the day we will have had a chance to really get to know you and work with you. It takes more than two minutes for us to know if we would like you to enter into our company of actors, singers, dancers, designers and technicians. And it should take more than a few minutes to know whether or not you would like to spend the next four years living, working and creating with our faculty. We hope you'll join us for one of the on campus audition/interview days.
