Design/Tech Interview Process

Student arranges a portfolio review/interview through the Admissions Office. To schedule, please go to:
Audition/Interview/Portfolio Review Request Form

Student is assigned a day and time for the portfolio review/interview (usually a Friday morning at 10am or 11am).

On the day of the interview, the student meets with John Wylie in the lobby of the Loretto Hilton Center at the assigned time. (Park at the Admissions Office.)

They will proceed to the Theatre Conference Room where they will be joined by representatives of the Design/Tech Faculty. (Parents are invited to wait in the lobby.)

The review usually takes about 30-45 minutes.

If the student wishes, Webster can arrange for them to:
a. go to lunch with a student (or group of students),
b. attend one or more classes,
c. attend crew from 7-11pm,
d. stay on campus for a night.

If the prospective student wishes to do any of the above, Webster will assign a student ambassador, who will be the primary contact point.

Note: students should expect to receive notification of acceptance (or decline) on or around April 1.
