On-Campus Auditions/Interviews Procedures
On-campus auditions can be helpful since the prospective student is able to spend the day on campus not only auditioning but also meeting with faculty and students and touring the campus facilities. For acting, directing, and musical theatre auditions, check-in commences promptly at 8:30 a.m. and auditions will conclude by early afternoon. Students should be prepared for a brief group warm-up session. Following the warm-up session, students will be asked to perform the audition pieces on an individual basis. Students also may be asked to do various exercises and improvisations at this time, and should be prepared to discuss their work on the audition pieces. Auditioning students have the option to visit classes as schedules permit, except on Saturday. They also are encouraged to view a performance while on campus. It is strongly advised that a student coming from some distance arrive the night before. Auditioning students will need to make their own arrangements for an overnight stay. Information on recommended hotels can be found at webster.edu/admissions/ undergraduate/visit.html
