Prospective Students

Visiting Oxy Theater & Performance Studies

In the fall Oxy Theater plans to hold a free workshop for prospective students where they visit the theater, meet faculty and students, audition or interview (portfolio & writing reviews), take a master class, and see one of our fall productions. Last fall, we held a hybrid version of our workshop with a virtual information session and tour and an in-person Q&A, mini-tour, dinner and seats to our production of SEIZE THE KING. If you are interested in attending in Fall 2022, please fill out this form and we'll send you information as soon as we have it available.

Although it is not required for admission to the college or the theater major, students may audition, interview or send portfolios or writing samples as supplements to the application. You may submit your materials through Slideroom on the Common App. In person auditions will resume when the campus reopens.

For the audition please prepare a 1-minute performance. This could be spoken word, a monologue, a song, a movement piece - show us something that expresses what you love to do. If you can sing, add 16 bars from any musical. If you are interested in directing, design, technical theater, or playwriting, please feel free to submit a portfolio or writing sample.

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.

For those of you accepted to Oxy and missed our open house on April 23, 2021, please enjoy our recording of it!
