Visiting Oxy Theater
Prospective students and their families are welcome to visit us. We recommend scheduling your visit in advance so you can make the most of your time here. You may sit in on a class, audition and/or interview, and take a tour of our facilities. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at (323) 259-2771 to make an appointment.
Although it is not necessary to audition, interview or send portfolios or writing samples to become a Theater major at Oxy, students may do so. You may audition in person or submit your audition or any other supplemental materials with the Common App. Auditions submitted online are given the same consideration as those done live.
For the audition we would like to see approximately one minute of Shakespeare and one minute of a contrasting monologue from a play written in the last 125 years. If you can sing, add 16 bars from any musical (please bring your own recorded music if you are doing a live audition, we will provide a sound box).
If you are interested in directing, design, technical theater or playwriting, please feel free to submit a portfolio or writing sample or bring it with you when you visit.
The deadline for submitting supplemental materials is the same as the application deadline for the college. If you are auditioning after the deadline, we cannot guarantee that your audition will be reviewed in time for the decision making process. However, we would still like to meet you and see you even after the deadline. This gives us a chance to get to know prospective students and for you to get to know the Theater Department.
On November 22, 2014 the Theater Department will hold a Workshop for prospective students. Come visit, meet faculty and students, audition or interview (portfolio/writing review), take a master class, and see one of our fall productions. This year students will attend David Ives' The Liar adapted from the comedy by Pierre Corneille and directed by Edgerton Guest Artist M. Graham Smith. Please click here to register for the workshop or here for more information. We are still accepting reservations for the workshop so sign up now.
