Auditions will be held for Theatre scholarships for all musical theatre and all non-musical theatre students on February 11 and 18, 2017 in Reynolds Theatre.
Auditions for the BFA Musical Theatre degree program will begin at 11:00 am with group dance auditions in Reynolds Theatre, followed by individual acting and vocal auditions starting at 12:00 p.m. You will also be considered for any available scholarships throughout this audition.
All other scholarship auditions and interviews for acting and technical/design students will be scheduled after the musical theatre auditions are completed on the 11th and 18th as well.
*NOTE: if you are interested in the musical theatre program and cannot attend the campus auditions, please contact Department Chair David Callaghan via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
Although we prefer that students audition on campus, we will accept taped auditions and will arrange a phone interview with representative theatre faculty.
Students must audition for the Musical Theatre Program on campus or via a taped audition to be enrolled in voice lessons in Fall 2017. All students accepted into the musical theatre program BFA degree track for Fall 2017 will have to formally pass a screening audition during the sophomore year to continue on the BFA track and receive that degree. Please note: UM also offers the general B.A. and B.S. Theatre degrees as well as BFA degrees with an emphasis in Acting, Directing and Design/Technology with Costume, Scenic and Lighting and Stage Management concentrations.
All applicants for scholarships and/or the Musical Theatre program will be notified of awards and/or acceptance by the end of March. University of Montevallo Theatre awards undergraduate scholarships funded through gifts to established scholarship accounts and through income generated by productions.
These awards are separate from other financial aid available through the University Financial Aid office. An applicant can receive theatre AND university scholarship awards and contact the UM Admissions Office with any questions at (205) 665-6030. An average of 8-10 scholarships are awarded each year to students based on talent and potential as well as academic achievement, as well as our Presidential scholarship which covers full tuition for 4 years. We can also award a limited number of Theatre students from out-of-state an in-state tuition award.
